  8. Ruby #5 large cylinders

    Live Steam
    I just got a Ruby #5. The first runs did not go so well, turns out I had a stuck pressure relief valve, so I got the pressure way too high. Accucraft quickly sent me a new valve, and all is well, though I am still running it with the dome off to watch the valve. 8^) My main problem is that...
