27: ashcroft gauges

In getting ready for plumbing the engine, I’ve made the two Ashcroft gauges that are on the engine.

The main gauge is 6″ Ashcroft Type 1009, used to read boiler pressure. Attached to this is a smaller duplex gauge for the air brake, and it’s an Ashcroft Type 1038.

Both gauges were made to Ashcroft’s own dimensions and specs.

The boiler gauge is mounted in a custom W-shaped brass bracket looking typical of an 1880 engine.
