    FWIW the JB units on the shelf have been discontinued.

    I thought they had been....the word discontinued was all I saw when I looked at the JB website.

    A fellow student just bought a set of JB gauges from our instructor....I warned him that JB was not the best, but he could not pass up the price.

    Yeah I believe Copeland recommends under 20 for its scrolls.

    Fieldpiece SMAN3 is $328.46 with hvactalk promotional code. At check out just put in the code “hvactalk”, then apply and you will get the 5% off the total cost of the product. Free shipping at shoprdholder

    I'm leaning toward sman3 this time. Digicool 1250 disappointed me when the thermistor wire broke at the thermistor. The wires are as fine as sewing threads. After a little bending and twisting it just broke off. I paid good money for this thing. Sure you get another under warranty, but its still the weak link in an otherwise great tool.
    ENJOY THE RIDE

    What's the best manifold for the AK900. Is the YJ Titan really good? 4 port.

    Why not use the one that comes with it?

    If you need a 4 valve then it works fine.

    I've had my Titan for 3 years now and I love it. Some don't like it but I have had nothing but love for it

    My ak900 with 5ft. hoses with a ball valve on each hose cost me roughly $430....compare that to what the supply house wants to charge for the Testo 550...$387 with no hoses.
    I have Digi-Cool for $269.80 with the hvactalk code free shipping. the Fieldpiece SMAN2 for $262.91 with the hvactalk code. shop.rdholder.com. and Mastercool hoses 4000lb burst
