      Sorry Vince, I was joking. Not that old a model but about the same mileage as some that old.

      Customer who's old friend was a plumber gave it to me. I replaced the old plumbers W/H.

        i was able to flip through a friend's old pipe fitting book.

        now wonder the men back then had arms as big as my leg.

        and we think we got it tough sometimes eh?

        Those old books make me really appreciate how far we've come in the trades.

        i wonder what the discussion will be about your book in a 100 years.

          Probably:

          "My press tool won't work."
          "These Sharkbite DWV fittings are hard to push."
          "I can't repair your water heater. The computer's down."
          "Espanol is muy difficil."
          "Sectional! Drum! Sectional! Drum! T&M! Flatrate! T&M! Flatrate!"

                    Can I play with the toy dozers???

                    I had a metal backhoe when I was a kid. It was about 16" long and about 10" high at the backhoe in the transport position.

                    Makes me turn my nose up at those mini copies.

                    Sweet book collection.
