The development of plumbers’ firepots, furnaces and soldering iron heaters roughly paralleled the introduction of blowtorches. Plumbers and roofers were dependent upon charcoal-fired firepots until the late 1870’s when firepots, using gravity-fed hydrocarbon fuels, were first marketed. The adoption of the use of liquid fuels was slowed by controversies regarding safety. By the late 1870’s, several companies offered gravity-fed products, including Burgess (1877), M.L. Hull (1878) and Dangler (1882). Firepots and furnaces using pressurized fuel tanks followed in the mid to late 1880’s.
