Manufactured in 1980, It was probably first installed around 82 or 83 but I'm not absolutely positive on the date.

My Milwaukee (SP?) Sawzall is older than your boiler at I believe 1958. Still works too, although it's "tired" I think it needs a rebuild.

No comment you young woodpeckers
Who gave you permission to stop ploughing. That's the trouble with these young upstarts (1 year younger than me) they think 3PM is quitting time. Back in my day you ploughed until you could not see the ground. No wonder the country is going to the dogs.
