Frosty Lives!

Alive and well.

And believe it or not, I was not there to replace Frosty. Rather, an adjacent boiler, -a 20 year old New Yorker. Proof positive that they don't make 'em like they used to!

Frosty just keeps on ticking...

    When you walked down the stairs, Frosty probably looked at you and gulped. ("Is this it? Am I done?")

    And then you walked up the stairs ("Whew!")
    Retired and loving it.

    No one knows it yet but me, but if I have my way the two systems will be combined with one MegaSteam and Frosty can enjoy a dignified retirement: Allowed to remain on station and in place, but sedentary!

    Wow that is a old one! I remember my dad telling me he had to go down early in the morning and knock down the fire and remove the Clinkers and then put a few shovel full in. What are Clinkers anyway??

    I suspect Frosty is suffering from a case of delayed ignition with the door wired shut

    When its being held together by wires and retort cement, it's time to pull the plug.
    Looks like everything on the Beckett is original. If there's a little zip tie around the wiring under the primary, it means (usually) nothings been replaced. I dont see too many Webster pumps anymore.
    That is asbestos right?
