  1. That's a great price for that. I have seen some old units, 20's and 30's restored for more than that. Some with 6 burners and double ovens for up to 12K.
  2. I'm planning a kitchen reno on my 1883 Victorian farmhouse. I'm looking at ranges, propane fueled and want any feedback on Elmira's reliability. http://www.elmirastoveworks.com/ The alternative is an original stove updated. Any input in that direction also much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  3. Likewise.Getting into the spirit even though it's almost 60 degrees and raining here in west central NJ.
  4. He's using the plumber's old cutouts.
  5. I hope he's in a better place. Condolences to all family and friends.
  6. I believe Kurt is correct. The tenent said that the upper t.stat was for the AC and the lower for the Heat. I told them it's wrong.
  7. At a town house today with a 2013 Lennox cat I furnace with a/c on top. 2013 Lennox comp/cond. Two thermostats, one on the third floor, one on the second floor. I turn on the a/c on the third floor, get cold air on all three floors. While that's running I turn on the heat on the second floor thermostat, furnace lights up. No zone dampers, only one unit. I run outside and the comp/cond is running at the same time the burner is firing. Looks like multiple thermostat wires to the board. If one thermo. is hooked to the a/c and the other to the furnace can both run at one time? First time for me. I
  8. Treat for the termites first. I have four sisters, and four brothers, that's too many.
  9. I keep a TIF at the bottom of my tool bag, the state of NJ requires such. I should check the batteries. If it smells...., you know the rest.
  10. I did some homework. Two things that are needed: A trap & an air break. My feeling is that a check valve only needs a bad gasket and it's methane city.
  11. Can a wash. mach. drain be directly connected to a waste line with only a check valve, mounted horizontally, no trap. Here's what the owner's plumber states: Looking at the picture of the washing machine drain connection you sent reminds us of your washing machine set up. Your drain connection is acceptable and was common in older homes where the piping conditions prevented the installation of a stand pipe. No trap is needed because the drain hose is connected directly to the drain piping of the house and no sewer gases can escape. There is a check valve on the drain connection and the che
  12. So is my old neighbor. When I was looking for someone to yank my tank I first called the original abatement company that had filled the tank in 2000. He warned that it is possible that now the gravel inside the tank could be considered hazardous if it absorbed any oil residue that may have remained in the tank after he cleaned it. I had also talked to the head of the building dept. in town and he told me I would need no permits to remove the tank as it was signed off on thirteen years earlier. His words- You wouldn't need a permit to throw away and old wheelbarrow you found in your backyard.
