    Hi guys! Just obtained a used Jensen wood boiler but there are no tags on it anywhere with a model number. Fire box dimensions are roughly 23" deep x 1 4" wide. Any help would be much appreciated, Thanks!! IMG_1264.JPG IMG_1266.JPG IMG_1267.JPG

    That's a boiler? Looks like a hot air furnace...

    Edit...the front looks like a hot air furnace ;)
    I'm no help on the ID though...and there is not much traffic around here this time of year.
    The only thing I can suggest is to keep bumping this thread every once in a while, you'll catch the right persons eye eventually.
    Or maybe keep an eye out for another one for sale that may still have tags on it.
    Just be aware that your HO ins co may have issues with it if there are no tags...

    I know this may seem rude...
    But i would sell that thing before i invested any money or time in it.
    Unless you had a workshop where heat wasn't important....No just sell it.

    Appreciate the opinion! I'm gonna assume this wont be the most efficient unit. Any other reason not to mess with it?

    I would compare it to a dial telephone and a new Gasser to a smart phone.
    If you were going to heat a building that wasn't being lived in it could be ok
    If this is going in your house,then insurance would be the first worry,safety next,then the amount of wood you will use and the time between chimney cleaning would be short.
    Basically any money you spend getting it to work would be better spent towards a modern boiler.
    Just my .05 cents
