    Last week I used mine to find a r410a leak outdoors on a condenser. It was a good size leak though. I also though it was a POS when I first started using it but, once I learned the nuances of...

    I don't care for 4 valve manifolds because they are needlessly bulky and I do not use a manifold to pull vacuums. I have a couple of digi cool AK 900's that I am very happy with and would recommend...

    I have had one for a long time and never had any problems with either the old of new sensors. Sounds like you got a bad one. They work great on R 22 but are useless for r410a.

    I don't think that it is universally true that ox/act is easier for a beginner then air/act. It's a lot easier for a beginner to put a hole in copper with ox/act. I agree that oxy/act can do more...

    Literally speaking it is not possible to correctly charge a mismatched system. That said I would go with charging by superheat.

    It would be more helpful if you stuck to commenting on things that you actually have experience with. Opinions of people with no experience on the subject do more harm then good.

    I have used YJ, CD and appion. Ball valves tend to wear out and leak. I consider CRT's to be expendable items that wear out like the brakes on my truck. If I can get a year out of one I'm happy...

    I would also prefer ox/act for 1 1/8 pipe or bigger but, especially since the switch to R410a, there is very very little in resi work that goes over 7/8.

    They both have their advantages and...

    IMO a flow indicator is a waste of money. I have the turbo torch one but never use it. I find it easier to set my regulator to 50 psig and adjust the flow of nitro by cracking my manifold valve. ...

    I'd also feel a lot better about the price if it were made in the USA but, until someone comes out with a comparable product for less, they will probably keep getting their price.
