SP2479 Progress Feb 16, 2013

John Ezovski

A bit of machining on sander valve on Bridgeport.  An attempt was made to mount valve on Leblond lathe. Issues were encounter with the plan.  Another attempt will be made next week.

Some pad welding on firebox roof sheet.  There are a number of deep gouges in the roof sheet on right side in area of cab bracket.  Pad welding of these areas began today.

Site clean up. We keep the site looking pretty good, but there is always ways to make it better.  A bunch of "detail" stuff was completed and grass cut.  Place looks good.

Progress is being made with acquiring bronze for rod bushings.  Order could be placed this week or early the following week.
