    The May Oil Burner Co, makers of Quiet May, was based in Baltimore. I still see old emergency switches with that name on them.

    What happened to the burner they were testing?

    That's awesome. And holy cow that burner is huge.
    Looks like they solved static pressure issues with the indirect down flow fan.
    I love in one of the advertisements, you know it's safe because the kids are playing and the boiler is right there in the background. Good marketing.
