    Nice! I think that was one of the first wet-base boilers.

    The description of this master piece in my book "The Ideal Fitter". Ideal Type "A" Heat Machines of the 1-A Series are very similar in principal and fire travel of larger capacities, as described on pages 53-62. The Machines of the 1-A Series are the most efficient and economical of all heating boilers of similar capacities. Having extremely low water line, they are particularly adapted for buildings with low cellars.

    Ideal Type A heat machine of the 1-A Series are covered with the famous asbestos lined Ideal Metal Jacket, held in place by nickel plated cover pieces and keys. They come in sizes of 450 to 900 sq ft of steam capacity and 750 to 1500 sq ft of water capacity. Pat'd July 29, 1919; Nov 15, 1921.

    In case you are wondering, I do not have any of these boilers in stock at the present time. All these boilers are on "back order". Just thought you might like to know.
