I had nothing to compare the 4X8 sheets I bought to, PC, but still threw a few 2X4's into the back of the truck to weigh those sheets down for the drive back to FFX from Dale City.

Agree with CD; never a problem with them and always fast shipping. Good vendor.

Things are still moving along on my mega home addition project. Running lots of copper lines for domestic water supply and the radiant heat. My lovely wife really likes the look and warmth of old school radiators so I’ve been busy running supply and return line for the six radiators in the new section. Three are units repurposed from demolished sections of old house and got four long but thin units from Caravatti’s, a architectural salvage place in Richmond VA. Doesn’t matter where I got em; it’s tricky getting the lines to the units and they are all heavy!

Looking good PC, a good feeling to be making progress.

I have a special fondness to old school radiators, too. Cold and drafty old house that I grew up in in Arlington had them, and in the winter I'd put my underwear and socks on one over night so they'd be toasty in the morning.

Mrs. PC can thank me for the tip later.

Many years since I've lived or worked where those heaters were common. Can't remember last time I even saw one, but I do remember how heavy they are.

In my area, the old school radiators are typically pulled out during renovations; I'm adding more!

I’ll be sure to pass that along! Currently she’s just using for wet rain coats!

My neighbor a few blocks over did a big renovation recently and had a couple extra radiators. He was kind enough to drop off at my place and I'm piping them into to heat my shop. Mrs. PC was initially giving me the look but is coming around. I'm a little concerned she is going to appropriate one of the room for growing her garden seedlings.

CX - yep, during my time in Eastern NM/ West
Texas, keeping house cool and the blowing dust out were much bigger a bigger challenge than heating.
