1920's

Stoker Coal Boilers automatically feed the coal and have controls and pumps just like any conventions boiler. They are intended to be used as a primary heat and often have domestic hot water coils as an added bonus. They can be set up independently or in dual sytem with your existing oil/gas boiler. They can accommodate both hot water base board or steam plumbing.

I think you'll find some in here - viewtopic.php?f=67&t=5309. I'm running one of their conversion stokers, but not the oldest (but I don't really know how old it is) - 85R and Pictures of Your Boiler (towards bottom of page).

I just pulled this beast out of the basement of our circa 1889 home. It appears to be an Electric Furnace Man feeder from the 1920's. The motors were apparently made by the Ohio Electric Manufacturing Co. Any idea if it has any value (other than scrap)?
