          The Safety Valve. A simple design that does not leak steam until it get to its pressure. When it leaks lots of steam it squeals. It was copied from a Japanese WADA WORKS boiler.

Hello. Did I understand correctly that this type of safety valve uses just a piece of (silicone?) tubing and no spring? If so, how do you adjust the pressure at which it blows off?

Yes silicon tube. You can use different types and thickness of silicons. I prefer the Dubro silicone large 3mm id as its consistent quality and i adjust by machining the portion of the safety down it sits on ie 4.2mm =45psi and 3.7mm =15psi aproximately. You just pressure test as you go.

           The boiler has come out nicely for my second attempt. The motor is installed with double universal joints and an oiler fitted.
