As I grow older in this business it is getting harder and harder to find a unit where I can say, “Wow this thing is older than me.”
I changed one yesterday and am still amazed at how they were built. It was like an art deco piece. Embossed lettering, printed metal, colors and the cast iron burners that would last another hundred years.
We now have high efficiency, light weight, sleek units that have lost that craftsmanship. I can’t help but reminisce about the past and remember working on these units with my Dad
