Re-hanging a ceiling radiator
Anyone ever play with Lincoln Logs as a kid? This is the grown-up version.
This rad was held up by four lag bolts. Two of them had pulled out, since they didn't penetrate the joist above, and this caused a dip in the steam main which collected water. Gordon built a platform of 4x4s to jack it up. A pair of 3/4x36" precut nipples, four clevis hangers, some all-thread and hanger bolts and nuts completed the job.
With the dip gone and a Gorton #2 at the end of the main, the system heats evenly and doesn't bang.
