    That's an earlier version of a gas-fired radiator. There was a layer of water in the bottom of the unit. The round device in the gas piping is a regulator which varied the gas input according to how much steam pressure was in the rad. Most of these were unvented- the exhaust went right into the room- so they would not meet most modern Codes.

    I can't see who made this one, but the James Clow company made lots of these things.

    Frank, are you even starting to train someone, many someones, to take over for you when/if you retire...?

    Maybe a game show...the Steam Apprentice

    I would never compare Frank to Trump.

    About the only similarity is that I would not be afraid to fire someone who didn't measure up............

    ...I would never compare Frank to Trump....

    That of course was not my goal. I was just trying to point out, in a joking way about something I feel is important...passing all of that unique knowledge and experience to the next generation.
