I found these on ebay and had to buy them. It was only $3 and I thought it would be interesting.

What do you think? I can see a couple of mods already. Might be kind of interesting to try and build this.

Hmmmm.....I read this thread, went in to check some chili and was thinking "how long before Norco is on this?" I hit refresh after about 4 minutes.

Anybody else catch the part about using asbestos lined firebox? What would we replace that with these days, hopefully something non carcinogenic?

That is cool. Like to check out old stuff like that. Norco you can't build that until you are off Jury duty.

Great find Larry... I would love to have that PDF to share with a buddy of mine down in Salt Lake City. I think you have my email. And while we're talking you mentioned last week that you were having a get together for whatever bowl game BYU played in... well I mentioned it to my son and he says he would love to come by and meet you guys. He says he's just around the corner from Rocklin... If it's cool I'm going to give him your email to contact you...

Chris
