Is there a book like The Lost Art of Steam, but for gas?

If not, I expect a royalty when someone writes it:)

    I believe Mark has a book as you are looking for.

    He is also working on a mod-con book as we speak.

    One of my techs asked me if there was a gas book written like the Lost Art book. I guess an easy to follow, fun to read book about gas system types and servicing.

    Paul, I am not Dan but

    I can guarantee if your tech wants to have fun learning then I have the manuals to help him do that. Maybe someday I will write a history of the gas heating industry, probably a good project when I finally retire. Say when am I going to do that? I have a lot of friends and relatives who keep encouraging me to write one about my life. I am afraid I would bore everyone to death. Just kidding as I have had a very exciting and event-full life. Maybe someday.

    Have your tech contact me at [email protected] and I will e-mail a catalog.
