    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?

    It is a total gravity furnace, very quiet with old Gordon
    gas burner, 750 millivolt powerpile generator.
