Perhaps in 1932 material was less expensive, or competition from other boiler manufacturers was not as fierce, so they did not have to design...
I'm not sure, but I think bigburner takes the longevity prize!
I am about an hour north of Buffalo, and slightly to the east --- right near Lake Ontario. So, not too close to Hamburg.
Thanks for the information. That's just the sort of information I was seeking.
No, Mister. Dat dare beez a WNY Buffalo accent, yah-hay!
I'm sorry Mike, could you repeat that? wud goon? :D
You would have to work a lot harder to offend me! After all, I live near Buffalo! :O
Ahh, so it is doable. Thanks for the quick responses. A light went on in the dimly light rooms of my mind today --- wondering if I can forgo the...
Perhaps this forum attracts the type of folks who are a tad off plumb, such as I. ;o) So far, I seem to fit in.
Hey, as long as I...
Thank you for your advice. I appreciate it! Those sound like good maintenance tips for a lot of heating plants, not just wood...

Fred, my wife would say she already lives in one of those. ;)
I may be throwing gasoline on a fire, but what the heck! It's Friday night. Don't Greenwood's run w/o storage? :D
A few years back, I had a family friend in to replace my fuel oil boiler. He had been in the business for 40+ years and did some...
I was wondering what had happened to your Wood Gun. You are so right when you speak of the operator's care in running his machine. This...
This is true. Heating my home/shop with wood and coal for the last 27 years has made me healthier than most guys my age (I like to think) ---...
Do all brands of wood gasification boilers elicit such a passionate following as Wood Gun does? You're like Harley riders or Corvette owners. :o)
Well, yes. A lot of folks love their particular brand of boiler, and like to encourage others to buy the same kind. I know how that is. I have...
Who can boast having the oldest wood gasification boiler? What would that be?
Good tip about slitting the bark on limb wood. I have had a lot of cherry rot inside it's bark, as I am in orchard country here. Most of...
But I will infiltrate your underground. When you least expect it. Days, weeks even months from now I will expose your secrets.
You and Mike both talked about loading your boilers with splits. Does the wood have to be split, or can similar diameter limb wood be used?
That does look nice and smoke free. Do you find that your EKO is fussy about wood size and shape?
Yes, I did notice the weight differential between a Wood Gun and some of the other brands. Believe me when I tell you that I am well aware of...
My flue is 6" and about 20' tall as well, but (after looking at the EKO data) I think I would need an EKO 40 to cover my BTU needs. You...
You did hit on one point that I do not like about the Wood Gun, that being price. Boy they don't give those away, do they?
I looked at...
So far, I am open to other boiler options. I have been reading threads on this forum since last summer, and my interest has pointed in one direction...
Yes, I would like to incorporate some storage into my system. What I can get through the cellar door, and down the stairs, will dictate...
Thanks for the response. I have seen your videos. Very informative. That's how I got started considering a Wood Gun!
I'm glad you mentioned the options. I will ask what upgrades are available when I decide to order.
A lot of folks appear to have the...
