Everyone needs a spare burner,or two,,This time its a 14'
SLOTTED,by National Oil Heat of Waltham Ma,,The company owner was Judson
Thompson,inventer of the overshoe buckle, ,John Leach was a friend who designed the pressure kerosene burner also the cylinder relief valve for
piston valve engines as well as a oil tight case for steam car engines,
There is some evidence that Stanley paid Thompson and Leach for licence to build,,,,And of course everyone knew Bill Nichols who built the famous
Nichols hand miller,,,
This burner has 2 ventouris and the casting looks good,,the bucket is o-k the
pics look terrible,,i did not clean it up,,not worth it for slow moving
items,,also...there are picks posted on here 24 Sept. 2012
If interested,,talk to me,,Lookin for V style pilot 1917+-
30 Hp stuff,,and Locomobile-48 parts,tools,accsories,,rims etc
Anyone got any Model I Loco stuff ??

Gee I wonder if anyone noticed that reference to piston valves
an a friend of Stanleys car,,and that royalty paid on use of oiltight case!
There are good patent drawings if anyone wants to chase em
From the deafining silence,,,,,,,not likely any interest in
of these details,,
So it gos,,ha,,ah,,
getting tired,,CB
