Cost of tools / parts / accessories
Hey guys. I was just curious where everyone gets their tools / parts from? I was checking out URI's catalog and they seem over priced for a lot of the stuff. I've read lot of good things about them regarding their prices but after reviewing their catalog, I'm a little confused.. I'd like to find a good and dependable place for any of my hvac needs and I'd appreciate any tips on where to look.
Personal preference - Live and learn
Tools are a matter of personal preference. Your tastes will change as you go along in your career. I try to buy USA when possible, but it is getting harder and harder to do so. For example: I buy refco gauges, JB hoses, craftsman hand tools when possible, some klein hand tools, YellowJacket tubing tools, and johnson controls leak detectors. Watch the Johnstone monthly flyers - they always have some great tools at a significant price reduction. You will learn what you like, and what is just junk. This forum helps to steer you away from junk.
