Back in the early 70s, when stoker production was almost extinct, an engineer (I think) asked to take the design to Alaska, or may even have worked for Alaska, and nobody cared at the time. It was before Rich's time, so it would take a real old timer at efm to know the whole story. I heard the story firsthand from an old timer, but it was years ago.
It was a ex employee that took the blue prints/plans designs to Alaska and they used them & made it.
EFM did not care at that point .
I was told that by a guy that was a efm dealer from 1953 to 1983 he to has a lot of old papers and prints from efm
when they decided to clean house back in the 70s he got alot of paper work and plans .
You also told me the same story back in 07 when I first ment you.
