Hi guys,
I just wanted to show off my D18. Ozsteamdemon made me an adapter so that I could mount this nice pressure gauge I got from Jensen. It runs a treat now!

Love the set up. I'm always interested in fairground ride arrangements and how folk set up.

A most enjoyable video Mike to watch. I really like the Wilesco angled transmission I reckon one of them would be super handy setting up multiple accessories.

Thanks Geoff. It's always fun to watch your D18 so I figured it was time to steam mine! I am glad you like the video. 😀

Thank you, Jim! Glad you liked it! The angled transmission comes in really handy if you want power going in two directions 90 degrees apart.
The pinion gears are plastic so when my grub screw stripped, I had to find a machine screw that would fit. It doesn't look perfect, but it works! 😀

Not a huge fan of accessories at the moment, but if anything was going to change that it would definitely be a fairground ride set up.

They bring back childhood memories of fairs when i was a kid - the sounds, smells and bustle and excitement.

Great setup, great video, thanks for sharing !
