    I bet very few of you are old enough to remember seeing one of these in action. The original boiler still sits in it original location, decomishined, and stripped of its aspestos.
    Sorry for the spelling.

    Never seen one in action and have only removed one in MUCH worse condition.

    That stoker has REAL value with a readily available price that might amaze you.

    I've got the coal

    No, seriously... I've still got a good pile of coal in the coal cellar of my 1920s home.

    That reminds me, gotta make another round of calls to see if anyone wants it.

    Grr... I wonder if the discussion went something like this:

    Let's convert over from coal to the new natural gas. Great idea. Maybe we should offer the coal we have left over to a neighbor. Nah, let's hold onto it.

    We might need it some day!

    Watch your email. I mentioned here that I'd be removing one and got three unsolicited requests.
