A grand American story (6 Posts)
A grand American storyThe guys at H.C. Oswald have been doing something very valuable and very unusual for decades. I loved their story when I heard it and wrote about it in this month's Supply House Times. This is a company everyone who works with boilers should have in their files. Here's the link: http://bit.ly/1fwsIxl
Wowthat is really quite a resource!
The only one of its kind.Imagine the work that went into this from generation to generation. I have several old-boiler reference books - Beacon, Pape Swift, Hydronic Rating Handbook. There are thousands of boilers in those books, and so many of them are still in service. These guys keep them going.
A good boiler should last 100 yearsIts interesting, when you dig deep into a 100 year old living thing (such as the companies that make up this industry) you learn a lot.
Here is an image of some of the cards in the office. Pretty coolYou pick up a piece of old iron and it tells a tale.
Have any of these records been digitized? If not, I'll volunteer to do it, just to see all of the information!- Joe Starosielec

Yes.And that's the best part. Robert has put most of this on their website in a searchable database. He also polished up one of each recorded product and photographed it for the site. It's truly a one-of-a-kind labor of love.
