Here is a photo of the first of five 3-inch Ericssons. It is my winter's work in my home shop. It has been test run and just needs a burner and a water supply tank to be complete. All of the parts are machined for the other four.

Also included are photos of the CNC operations to make the water pump link. All bronze parts were cut out in this manner.
