Very nice collections guys
Should have gotten some I let and saw go to the dump.
Be safe not fast. body parts don't grow back
Maybe you find this of some interest :
Your German Buderus boiler [white line] is in fackt a Dutch Nefit.
The first condensing boiler left the factory in 1980.
Nefit was founded with the help of you folks [marshall help ].[ Fasto was a brand name also used [F.A.STOkvis]]
Before the name Nefit was used, the name ASW [automatic screw works] was common.
At the present moment Bosch is the owner of Nefit.
---------Holland aint flat !!! it is hollow !----------- first thing my mommy told me was : learn to swim
One of my customers (a doctor at that) still uses his 1954 Trane belt driven gas furnace and 1967 3-phase Armstrong condensing unit in his house. When the seasons change, he has to switch a disconnect located in his mechanical closet between "winter" and "summer" operation. Amazingly, the system operates properly, and he still refuses to think of upgrading.

Some of those give me nightmares :-)
Iron Fireman Chrysler air temp etc.
Great pics though
I will believe that the government is broke when the welfare checks start bouncing!!
Does anyone happen to have any older Carrier badge photos? I wouldn't mind printing up one and sticking it on my newer Carrier AHU.
I thought I was the only one that collected these. We pull some old equip. out of the military bases. I was planning to make a display for the office. Mine arent nearly as cool as those though.
Only us old timers have seen or even know that these unit exist. That is one fine collection.
I used to have a few , but, they have gotten lost or miss placed over the years.
American Standard, Holly,Bryant,Janitrol, still have some old labels out there.
I worked on Fredrich geo thermal the other day , it was 1971.
"Everyday above ground, is a good day".
"But everyday that you have made a difference in someones life, may insure you stay above ground a little longer".<aircooled>
I worked on an Iron Fireman boiler that was built in 1912 (Is it possible? All you historians? Loonie?) That was stamped on the front of it. Basically, it looked like an Asbestos covered fire Hydrant. This HAD to have been moved from someplace else, because it was in the basement of a house that was built in the '40's. That was in Red Deer, Alberta - about 1990 when I fixed the boiler... Old cast iron rads throughout the house.

Teach the apprentices right... and learn from their questions and ideas.
Thanks guys...I really enjoyed seeing those...since I'm not old enough to have seen any of them first hand
Nope. All just stickers or a plastic thingy now. Many of the old ones were solid brass

All she needed was a transformer.
duct tape and cable ties will fix anything, if that don't work add a 90-340.
I have some Mayflower tags like that. As these are posted on my web site I kinda had to pick and chose
