Noel is coming tommorow to pick thru what he wants the rest......oh well....to the scrap heap. Hanging on to many of them for over 5 years. Everyone loves them and wants them until it is time to HAND(back)load them and take them away. Whatever is not gone by this weekend will be junkyard bound. Deadman!!!! I tried, but enough is enough.

    Don't junk that Our Own flue rad

    that's one of the ones I swapped you a while back. I'd ride to Long Island to get it, and maybe a few others....

    Absolutely not Frankie boy

    You know me better than that. Actually, I originally used BOTH flue rads in the house, but after about a year THAT one leaked like a mother (did some damage too!) and the ever-Patient Barbara said : "OUT!!!!! NOW!!!!." I never got the chance to look that hard, but it could have a sand pit hole or something in the bottom. I plan on repairing it...in my spare time... HA! Don't worry Frank, if I EVER plan on getting rid of that one, I'll let you know,first. I am keeping some of the smaller a real unique ones and I will always be on the lookout for REALLY uniqiue ones like the stairway rad and circular...but the rest.......Mad Dog

    It's crazy Mad Dog

    But my brother (and as many friends as could fit on the stairway) hauled a BIG one, (I forget how many sections) down into his basement... for LOOKS! He doesn't even have hot water heat. A while back, some folks couldn't wait to get rid of "those ugly things" and now they're coming back in simply as ornaments. I personally love the ornate castings, but for heaven's sake, they're more fun when they're hot! Maybe we could put a water heater element inside and let him get a little better use out of it...
    Incidentally, a few antique flywheel engines used them for a cooling system. Some with oil, some with water. Kevin

    Our County Courthouse

    still has the old rad in it, but (of course) they're no longer hooked up. These are L-O-N-G four column rads that will nearly take a forklift to get them out.

    The had to put AC in the place, so why keep the boiler and radiators? How much we've 'progressed,' it's sad....
