Looks like one I used to service. It had auto ash removal and hopper feed. The hopper feed worked off a quite sensitive pressure switch. Sure took a long time to service that baby.

I sure have interest in this outing, just not sure if it would work out for me work wise... I would say count me as "tentative" if that works?

Smitty, I'll pick you up and the only penalty will be a 5 hr ride...8 for me. You need to get out of 'Dodge', and we can make the rounds in NEPA. I like 84 to 81, and stay off the coastal route. Peaceful, and NO stress!!!

8 tons a day......sounds like job security for life to me. Matt, isn't there talk of a certain local brewery expanding to our area also? Can we get into the power plants for a "look=see"?
We need 'short bus' to fly down, and then we can have a 'short bus' to ride in, driven by a fellow member called "Short Bus". A guy 'formerly known as Stoker Scott' would probably love to get in on this trip,
if he doesn't have commitments in Bellows Falls VT. :idea: :shock: :?: :!:
