This was state of the art back in the 30's. This wire is very thick, it is the only place where I have seen this kind of hangers.

I see alot of that in OLD buildings. It was easy for them to twist and dial in grade perfectly. Thanks for the pics. I always like pics:thumbsup:

Some dead guy was really proud of that back in the day.

Wait till were dead and gone and the next generation of plumbers see our plastic J hooks and shark bite fittings a 100 years from now. Bet they wont last as long as the old school plumbing. Nothing but respect for those old school plumbers Nothing was easy all hard labor.

They did work hard but damn they were slow as snails. Drilling holes by hand,etc. We are lucky and we still complain. Those guys were not plumbers they were plumbing warriors. Hot lead and iron:eek: Atleast they didn't have global warming:laughing: and they didn't have to ask for little cokes in the glass bottles and have people look at you like your from mars.

They won't see my J-hooks or shark bites. 3/8" all thread isn't that expensive. I refuse to install crap.

Old time plumbers had more talent in their pinky finger than most journeymen now. I swear it's like plumbers now don't think 2 fittings into the future. Bugs the crap out of me. Scuse me, I gotta use the restroom.
