    If it works at all it is a nice illustration of just how forgiving steam can sometimes be...

    A Double stacked Header.  Not ready for The Miss America Pageant, but I have seen much worse..Is there an Equalizer?  Any pictures from further back?  Some boiler rooms are so tight..Mad Dog 🐕

    Supply risers bushed down to 2" coming out of the boiler. That's a big surprise!!

    Another company with no access to a threader larger than 2"
