Howdy folks, I'm rejacketing the boiler on an antique Amoskeag steam fire engine. Originally this was done with a material known as Russia Iron, which is no longer available. The closest thing I can compare it to would be mild steel sheet with a finish simular to that of blue steel shim stock. My plan is to blue polished 22ga. mild steel and make my own. Now the big question: does anyone know of a source for bright finished mild steel sheet? Thanks.
