Re: Oil firing

only my opinion....but I had a 3/4 inch friends model hudson, that was oil fired, and I never had a lot of luck wth it....I tried a Bagley burner, one from little engines....and a couple others, I can't remember where I got them....could never seem to get good, complete combustion in a small firebox??
