Default Steel for 1/3 scale Case boiler

What types of steel (asme or astm numbers) were people using for model steam tractor boilers ? the sa 285 -c specified in the print is not real common around here while some like 516 would appear to have better characteristics in some regards.
The second question is where can I get it? The shipping could be really spendy unless it was cut close to final sizes. thanks Chris

Chris,

Make contact with Jeff Lund down in New Ulm. He is a Stak sponsor and boilermaker. You can shoot him a PM or call him at 507-276-6553. He'll have your answers and might even make the boiler for you!

He just built the boiler for the 40 Gaar Scott in IA.

Beth
