Are you asking about the exhaust or the inlet?

If it is the inlet, just get a piece of tubing and a compression collar and nut.

One more thing.....  you really need to fix the slide valve actuation side rods. Flip over the levers at the bottom so the rods run straight up and down or parallel to the vertical line of the cylinder. Having them way out on an angle like that is not a formula for longevity.

Most of all..... keep having fun![/quote:3616d62 ...
Stumpy's Sawing Shed
A good looking arrangement.
Meths burner wont burn !
Thanks Mamman, lots of good advice coming my way, much appreciated. I think my main problem was using copper tube instead of brass, the copper is taking away heat and possibly acting as a condenser, I now see condensation forming on the tube even when I try to light it.  The slots need work also, along with the wick material.

I'll have a play around today with it but I think it might sensible to scrap it and start again

With a great deal of help from Mamod, thank you very much Peter, I now know the above brochure was printed in October 1999.
Is my new Windmill a Centenarian?

Thanks for the kind words guy, i believe the smithy is an Arnold, and was built with sparking mechanism back in the 30`s perhaps.

The Blacksmith is indeed an Arnold accessory c1930.
