I bought a Mamod SP2 early this year for my collection it is small and basic but I really like it, unfortunately before I was able to do anything wit it my wife who has had a long and complicated illness passed away at the end of April a difficult time, but here is my version of steam washing, since I made the video I have moved the pulleys on the line shaft to slow down the poor man on the water pump, I am using Sterno, a simple display but I am very pleased with it it seems to have a certain charm

Great display Les - both simple and charming as you say.  Glad though you have arranged to give that poor chap's arms a more appropriate work rate.

A nice setup and most importantly it highlights the fun of steaming.

My condolences to you, so sorry to hear.

Do not often see a SP2 running and the accessories are an added bonus.
