    my fav tools

    I would need several pics to cover my arsenal -- I'm a HVACR Business owner, so I only get the best tools.

    I especially like the Fluke 1587 multimeter -- hands down the best multimeter.

    Damn --...

    10.8 volts is for residential wimps

    I quess if you have commercial contracts with 20+ rtus you'd understand.

    I personally feel anything less than Makita 18V Lithium is for recreational amateurs.

    not a time to go small

    Only amateurs or recreational pros would choose anything less than 18V Lithium -- sorry, but Makita is the best i've seen so far.

    Best scale for HVAC & Refrigeration

    Of course i'm leaning towards the YJ 68802 but I would appreciate input for an all around scale that's not only accurate for small refrigeration systems but also small commercial systems (less than...

    become an engineer like me

    I remem my days at Wyman Gordon (South side of Chicago) as an HVACR technician in 1979 before this Fortune 400 company closed down -- the company had a high of 40,000 workers.

    I also remem when...
  6. whatever

    I had a customer that bought cheap China chiat on ebay -- damn thing couldn't detect a leak on an indoor coil (Heat Pump) that my YJ Accuprobe detected.

    3rd world technology -- no thanks -- and...

    What happened to my post on RV valve?

    I would like to revisit this -- especially since I'm the only Professional Engineer & licensed HVACR contractor in the U.S. that has proven credentials starting a career as a technician.

    I'm...

    Nothing beats the Makita 18V Lithium

    after 2 yrs of rtu's, repair, & replacement -- nothing beats the Makita 18V Lithium.

    It was, and still is the best.


    If you're just getting one, you might want to go with something lighter and...

    not enough bore holes

    The last Tranquility 27 I installed was a 3 ton package -- we bored 4 holes 250ft deep to get a design water temp of 90 in the summer & 60 in the winter -- this is in NW Florida where our ground temp...
  11. yep -- ditto

    If the regional tech manager personally calls you & apologizes, you know your a star :D
  12. no bs -- talked to regional technical manager

    Amana had a problem with the RV sticking, which would blow out the pilot tube.

    Same thing happened to those cheap Comfortmakers.


    :p
  13. old line sets

    flushed out with rx11 and pulled a decent vacuum. Those external txv aren't so hot either.

    H10 to noisy around customers in supermarkets

    I still prefer the YJ Accuprobe since you can put it in silent mode so you don't spook customers in supermarkets like the H10 would (sounds like a gieger counter on a radioactive leak) and also it...

    YJ & Imperial 4 valves

    YJ Titan & Brute II 4 valves, and I also use an Imperial 4 valve.

    YJs are better with easier reading guages, forged body, and the hook doesn't come out like the Imperial.

    If I were to buy a...

    Except for the 337 clamp meter

    I'm still pissed that Fluke's top of the line clamp meter is made in China.

    Still have my 25 year old Fluke 87 that still works except for the capacitor checker (still works on 5 mf for fans).

  17. Reversing Valves & 410a -- ongoing problem?

    I use a makita

    They rock on concrete.

    This is definitely a tool you would want to go to a pawn shop & get a good deal.
  19. I actually heard that too

    I heard that 502 works well (I think it was 502).

    As I said in an earlier post, the oldtimers use Toulene or Xylene, which are flammable paint thinners -- one moron thought I was kidding.

    I...
  20. I put it in the suction & use a handwheel valve to build pressure

    You definitely want to restrict the flow to get a good flush -- blows out the oil well this way.

    You better make sure you get all of the flush out or it will eat away the new oil and harm the...
  21. you would recover it dodo

    that's what a recovery machine & cylinder are for.

    Fiqures someone with a sub 100 IQ would say something like that -- maybe that's why you & mustardman still work for someone and make peanuts...
  22. Anybody using R 11 for flushing line sets?

    The price of Rx 11 for flushing line sets is ridiculous, and I was wondering whether anybody uses the R 11 that older chillers ran on?

    Thx

    That's my understanding as well

    I wish I had a recycler.

    The reclaimers i've seen seemed to focus on 134 -- don't know whether the contractor has an option for one -- sure would be nice though, especially with the 22 phaseout.

    PM helps during the slow times, but....

    I've employed engineers & technicians since 1987.

    The problem is that of the hundreds of technicians i've worked with or employed in the HVACR industry, only a few I would call true technicians.
