STEAM  ROLLER

- REMARKS  TO  RESTORATION -

After CLEANING, RE-BENTING & LIMESTONE REMOVING
- with a mix of vinegar acid & destilled water -
this beautiful STEAM ROLLER has been working again ...

... BUT !!! In October 2011 ...



... THERE WAS A SIZZELING NOISE! Water dropped down into the flames.
1st TRY to replace all rubber seal rings. To get access and
to remove the glass, nearly the complete machine had to be
taken apart - and after all: ASSEMBLING WAS A LESSON OF PATIENCE !
Every screw had its own nut - and in most cases, the nut was very
difficult to apply: I had to make tools out of cardboard for !

T E S T ... The SIZZELING NOISE CONTINUED - OhOh! - There was a
LEAKAGE IN THE BOILER - Disassembling, SOLDERING THE GLASS UNIT ...



...Assembling again, T E S T - the SIZZELING NOISE CONTINUED,
ANOTHER LEAKAGE in the boiler was discovered !
Disassembling, again SOLDERING, Assembling ...

... Finally, the STEAM ROLLER is running again !
