Description Wooden mold for metal piping for a boiler made by Combustion Engineering. It is a very complicated mold and is made up of eight or more piece of wood--both nailed and glued together. The center portion of the mold is painted black. A metal "C" is glued on the top piece of the mold, and the sequence "2A 7377 A" is glued closer to the center. The mold is solid other than two .5" diameter, .75" deep holes drilled in the back (possibly for a handle?). No patent number is present and no record can be found for the "2A 7377 A" sequence.

This mold may have been used to make ship boilers during World War II.
