Wow great post!
Min max amp would be fantastic.
Also bought some fluke lead combos for it.

Learn (or brush up) on:
Cap tube systems and TXV
How systems are controlled (EG pumpdown)
Keep indoor cond. coils in restaurants CLEAN!
Door gasket condition can be critcal...
Something to remember:
I have the appion flow rig with 1/2 hoses, an appion vacuum pump, and a bluvac.
I was recently working on a small system (double door reach in cooler) after a compressor...

Another vote for the AK900s.
I would recommend trying their manifold too. I thought it looked dumb and I would hate it, but I have come to simply adore it. 1/4 turn valves are the way to go.

I have tested my SMAN3 at the same time as my Bluvac. The SMAN responded EXTREMELY slower. At vacuum ranges of 700 microns + the SMAN seemed very inaccurate. When I got down to 500 and below I...
Just read through that page - what a good read!
One thing that I apparently do wrong, is when purging nitrogen I tend to purge quickly at a high pressure. I'll start doing it at just a few PSI.
I have two of these on my truck. Why fuss with uncomfortable pads you wear?
I carry one of these mats with me on almost every call. Grab it with the same hand as my Veto XL.
Get one - You'll be fine.
I (think) I've been pretty gentle using it, so maybe it's fine and the problem is just in my head. I'll look into it again soon and if it still seem abnormal, I'll contact you.
Is this normal? - My bluevac "wiggles" a lot.
Meaning I can grasp the metal hex fitting on the bottom with one hand, and the plastic head with my other hand, and there is very noticeable play...
This offers me nothing over the SMAN3 I already have. I agree with 4D's.
-Don't put the wireless scale info on the screen. I can't believe people recommended this. Keep this thing...
I have to admit that one thing I REALLY love about my AK900 over my SMAN3 is the manifold. Those 1/4 turn valves are sweeeet.
I am totally spoiled on them, and every other manifold valve I use...
Yeah, we've considered adding a relay with the digital timers, but then it's getting to be a chore...
They already are double the price of the analog, then the wiring and relay, extra time....
Regarding the 9145-00:
Have you guys had good success with these things controlling a moderate load?
Usually on large systems they are just switching control loads, but we have had some bad...
I've used one for over a year. Been happy with it.
At the time they offered no case for it, so I bought a little waterproof pelican case and she fits like a glove.
Looking good man!

We're talking about 1-2 oz max. The reason you use R22 is because most leak detectors pick it up very good.

I would only do this as an absolute LAST resort. And after describing to the customer how much it can screw up the system.
In fact, I actually wouldn't do this at all. Unless the customer insisted...
You save yourself time and immeasurable grief?
Wow, all that and then your Return key quit working on the keyboard!:eek2:
I'm assuming this is a cap tube system.
I will weigh it in but will usually add additional refrigerant if needed, to get my subcoooling ~12º. No more than 15.
You also of course verify that your...

Jim is a nice guy, with great prices, and a LOT of free information on his website to learn from.
(and is located within an hour of me:grin2:)
Not so happy with Manitowoc right now. They give very little allowable time to do warranty repairs, and the whole process is long and drawn out.
It's especially bad when we get to do the warranty...
The first thing I like to do when suspecting defrost timers, is grab a sharpie and make a tiny mark around the minute knob on the timer. (to mark current time/position)
I do this before I even so...
