    I'll bet that with some insulation and rebalancing, that boy wouldn't do too bad.

    There are quite a few left on gas.

    Last one I saw running on oil was '94.

    Great selling feature: "sorry but this appliance is only 80%safe"

    Had to leave the "ring" in more than one basement.

    Wished I had a camera; years back saw one a homeowner rednecked a wooden plywood box with a delhi blower and motor on it. Classic

    Pretend forced air

    Never seen one of those in operation...how quiet are they and how many CFMs does one actually end up moving?

    I actually tore one out last year that was running on oil, and still running. Had a newer Beckett on it though. It was a conversion.....

    Sawdust to oil conversion, complete with an Iron Fireman feeder and hopper.

    I lived in an apartment/ row house where some "smart guy" hacked on a belt drive blower motor and fan cage to one... I laughed my ass off the first time I saw that.
