    It's a Johnson Model 200, and it's set up for natural gas. 26,000 BTU, 50 lbs lead capacity.<br>
    <br>
    The link goes to the Johnson page, and there are photos and specs there.<br>
    <br>
    However, the photos on that page are mixed up. The Model 15 is the small, skinny unit in the middle, and the Model 200 is actually the one on the right. It dwarfs the Model 15. The scale of the photos is off. The Model 15 is only 2/3rds the height of the Model 200. Look at the builders plates and you'll see how far off the scale is.<br>

    I have this mounted on top of a custom metal base that's basically a two foor open cube. I wanted something stable (the bottom is solid with sides that come up a few inches) for ingot storage. This keeps it from tipping over, while at the same time you don't have to bend over to work the furnace.<br>
    <br>
    It's in nearly new condition. There is some slight discoloring on the top from the paint being heated, but it isn't brown or burned.<br>
    <br>
    I keep meaning to get around to firing it up to reduce some scrap lead I have around here into ingots, but never seem to get around to it. I haven't used this furnace since the late 80's or early 90's. It just sits patiently in my garage, hogging up space.

    Correct. There is no valving.

    Those models are available, but much more expensive. Most casters therefore use a bottom pour ladle if they are worried about dross.
