after the dead men and before Dan
As a a small heating shop here in eastern Mass. I visit many one pipe steam jobs, as a side note those are my favorites...What I do notice, is there was an era after the real dead men, that replaced the original systems, and for the most part wrong..Mainly with the venting, the near boiler piping, and the poor workmen ship...and last but not least sizing. I am sure there are many guys like myself who have read Dans books and gone to the training offered and walk in and quietly laugh at what we see...Thanks to Dan we now have a generation of well trained steam guys who go in and not only replace the boiler but return the system to how it is suppose to be...To all the trained installers, isn't it nice to walk into a job, fearless if anything we may find, because we now know how to fix it.. How funny to listen to the guy ahead of you at the local supply house asking for pictures of how he should pipe the job, you lost .. I feel working with you head before you hands is so very important....Thanks Dan
