Weil Cast Iron Baseboard Assembly Tool
Does anybody have one of these I can rent, borrow, or buy. I really only have a need for one for about a days work, but if I have to buy one, I guess I can resell it. Tried to rent one from local wholesalers and haven't had any luck. The baseboard is so expensive almost no one uses it anymore.
You might have divulged your location with this request for a more prompt response. Are you moving old bb or installing new ones? Have you a supply of new push nipples at hand presently? The only tool most tradsmen loan out belongs to their dog! Hi Hi
I'm in Aurora, Il - about 40 west of Chicago. The 1st floor of my ranch house is heated with Weil CI baseboard installed when the house was built in 1961. The basement was never finished or heated and I'm in the process of doing that. I came across some new surplus Weil no. 9 baseboard heavily discounted and I picked it up. It is in various sections with end pieces, new push nipples and radiator els, just need to assemble and pipe to existing Burnham Series 2 boiler.0
Kinda got side tracked with some other projects. Will probably get back to this after the holidays. I can buy an assembly tool and sell it back to the plumbing supply house, will cost me about $150 to do that. Considering the cost of ruining a piece of baseboard trying to force it together, I'll probably just bit the bullet and pick one up.0
Actually I haven't been able to put them together yet and would be interested in borrowing your assembly tool. Would be willing to pick it up in palatine if that works for you. Feel free to call me at 630-701-4533. Thanks0
