Killington in Vt. puts out 55,000 cfm at 175 psi when all the guns are running...
They have a combo of electric and diesel compressors...

Will you have it 'clicking' before Dec 1st? It's looking done from the pics. Don't get sidelined by the multiple requests for you valuable time.


No way! Stupid things like work keep getting in the way! :mad: :mad3: I've actually run the stoker already so I could make sure it works OK and to listen to it click. Actually, I knew it worked OK, I wanted to listen to it.

The extension cord deal works fine for the "can I hear the stoker from the bedroom trick" (I did the same thing with dad's EFM), but after that it is nothing but armored cable.

Do you already have a timer for the beast? Are you installing a low water cutoff?

Yes, I have the timer and triple aquastat. I don't think I need a low water cutoff, it's not a steam system.

low water cutoffs are commonly required by codes. there are two types, one for water and one for steam.

I'm fortunate enough to have a brand new S400A stoker timer (the one with the mercury switch in it). :D :)

Me after a long day plumbing:
