    I have a 10 ton Trane evap coil from a Voyager. As a service tech I really don't come across as much as an installer would. I was wondering if it's worth the time to take in to the scrap yard. I'll hold onto it until the wife gives me enough grief.

    I just took the coils from a POS Chinese window unit to the yard. Threw in a melted fan mtr.(also chinese built),a couple of brake rotors and a couple of short pieces of rusty angle iron. Got $58.00 for it. Didn't look at the reciept untill I got home. Guy weighing goofed up and wrote down I had 585lbs. of short steel. I think he mean't 58 and 1/2 lbs. James can take his Fords there. He'll be able to retire then.
    There's TREACHERY AFOOT!!!

    Ahhhh, that would be nice.

    New job is going quite well and I'm getting all the hours I want. Robin's job is up to full time, but we have a lot of catching up to do. I am not saying I won't make it to Bennington, but as of now it doesn't look like I'll be there.

    Believe me, I really DO want to be there, just that this has been a very bad year for us.
