@ August 1, 2002 3:15 PM in REALLY old steam - Dan H."An engine for giving a sufficient heat to all the rooms in a house from the kitchen fire. "A" is a copper with a a still-head "B" is a lead or copper pipe fixed to the head of the copper thorugh which the steam from the boiling water heats. It is passing through the eight rooms the pipe is fixed to the wall or side of the room in the place of the chimney. "C" and "C" are stop cocks by which the steam may be suffered to pass slow or fast as you please. (Isn't that a great line?) "D" is the vent for the steam to pass out at. "E" is a cistern of water to replenish the copper as it boils away. That's it! The significance of this piece is that James Watt will not give us the first radiator until 1784, 39 years later. Isn't this a wonderful couple of pages!

@ August 1, 2002 2:38 PM in REALLY old steam - Dan H.drawing I have in my collection. It's from The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, May 1745. It's an extracted article, just three pages, but wonderful to me. My buddy Larry Weingarten put me on to it. It was for sale in England. Thirty bucks for the two pages, and it just arrived. Imagine what the whole book would be worth. The title of the very short article (really just one paragraph) is A Proposal for Warming Rooms by the Steam of boiling Water conveyed in Pipes along the Walls. William Cook
