    Nice job @JohnNY

    Having worked in the Boston area in the past the stress and strain of getting around the city, parking and parking tickets is a real big deal. I can remember driving into "China Town" at 6:30 in the morning and plenty of place to park, leaving to chase parts and coming back to the job and lucky to park a few blocks away. For those that work in the "country" you really don't want to experience this. TG I don't have to go their anymore

    Actually, their statement that there are only three main steam boiler manufacturers left, is wrong. Off the top of my head, I know of these:

    US Boiler (Burnham, Crown, New Yorker)

    Weil-McLain (Weil-McLain, Williamson, Union Steam etc.)

    ECR (Utica, Dunkirk, Columbia)

    Slant/Fin

    Any others?

    I guess you had to use US Boilers handbook, but you could’ve had Dan's EDR book in the background 😁.
    Congrats, always like to see good press, especially about steam. Well deserved.

    @Steamhead Green mountain is made by Weil Mclain?? The ones that I have seen have side outlets (think they are 2" but could be wrong).

    Yeah, I didn't like that line either, but what can you do. I just put on a nice shirt and answered questions.
