I made it from an old diesel fired workshop heater that we scrapped and mounted it an an old belle mixer frame, made a lid from the fuel tank that fed the heater lagged it with rock wool off a central heating tank then covered the top with an old 45 steel drum

We've got about 200 gallons of diesel that came from old tanks and pipes from some of the jobs we have been doing of late, so have plenty of fuel for it as well


we've got over 1/4 of a mile of lead covered copper cable

We just put a load in the burner leave for a few minutes and the lead flows out into the ingots, turn it off then pick the very hot copper cable out (with welding gauntlets on)

Lead covered copper wire. That is a real find.
Never come across that before. Guess the lead was to shield the data carried on the wires from the Russans, or in case of nuclear blast.

As some of you know I have a yard that is to the rear of a scrap yard and drive through the main yard nearly every day but the lads who own it know I like to have a tinker with stuff.....So had a nice surprise the other day when I found this in my yard
RIMG0308.jpg
Someone had weighed it in and Steve (the owner) had sent it down to my yard while I was away
So lifted the hood
RIMG0309.jpg
Looks like it's been in a damp environment

Jumped the battery and it turned over but no smoke had a closer look and the fuel rack is seized,so off with the linkage freed off then back in and blow me it fired up but..........spitting diesel everywhere (somebody had slackened every fuel pipe trying to get it going) tighten it all up and away she went

So now to the output....................nothing........... but after further investgation find the 415v 240v &110v sockets are fed from a rdc that is f@@ked so of to the electric suppliers to be told they are 120+.................so back in the van to have a better search at the yard....found one out of a control box from a large compressor bit smaller physically but made it fit......so now got all the sockets working but the welder still not playing.........got 40-50v output but very little ampage (won't even register on my meter) anyway got called in for tea so to be continued when I get a bit more time

Looks vaguely like an early Mosa, Mog
Should be able to get info on that alright

Sounds like a very nice 'gift'/prezzy
