I think you'll find some in here - efm Company History. 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)?
