    Someone who used to frequent the wall would be interested in that nameplate. Haven't heard from him in awhile. Someone chime in with the name??

    I've been collecting old oil burner name plates since I started in the business. Thankfully they're harder and harder to find.

    Thatcher was in the business for decades- looks like they eventually became part of Stewart-Warner, which also acquired the Winkler burner company. The Lebanon, Indiana address was the old Winkler plant.

    Two fine old names we don't see anymore.

    >> You either really know your heating history, or you're older than dirt and lived it. Kudos, either way.

    I have two of those old low-pressure Winklers sitting in my garage.

    My favorite burner name was "Harvey Whipple oil burner" Think they were made in Springfield, MA near me.

    Also, The "Waltham Dyna Jet" that one had two blast tubes.

    Now that I thought about it I stand corrected. Thatcher obviously did make boilers I remember a commercial one.
