    Yeah, this is HVAC talk. But it's not fireplace talk or political talk either. There are many here that are cross trained in commercial food service equipment.

    Would an Appliance/Cooking Equipment forum work here? Maybe one called Food Service Equipment?? If so, it should be a Pro only forum due to its content.

    The idea was tossed around a while back. What is your opinion?

    I work on commercial gas equip. once in a while. I doubt I'd use it much, but some may.

    In any given town, the refrigeration people seem to inherit the entire kitchen.
    I spent more than a few days servicing commercial cooking equipment.
    There wasn't much competition, and a billable hour is a billable hour.
    By doing it all, I kept my customers happy.
    A happy customer doesn't stray.

    You may not get much traffic, but my vote would be yes.

    We've got an entire division just for food service where I work.

    I think it'd be an excellent idea.

    I would have to agree. I have a site I use alot. It has tech sheets, wiring diagrams, installation refrences and alot more. All you have to do is type in the model number. I hate it when I go to a customers house and the papers are gone.

    Otto might enjoy it. He has trouble with crooked cakes.

    I hate the fact the two disciplines can be combined. I hate it big time.

    But. Reality is. There aint no shame in it. Put it on the formun. I might want to learn something.

    Why not!

    Its hard to specialize in this business, I too have to work on some unusual stuff sometimes.
    I've ran into some interesting stuff over the years.
    Once I was asked to work on a hotdog roller.
    A commercial dishwasher or two, conveyer belts, laundry equip, ovens, so yeah, I think it would be an excellent category to add.
    All my leon freaked out!

    I say yes, but then keeping the h.o. away so they dont burn the joint down. I like the idea, I start a new job Monday the 9th as Cheif Engineer at a very large hotel. I am in charge of the whole operation and finally get to put my skills to work. This would be a great starting point for anyone like myself who may be looking for something or have a tech issue with. My vote is yes.
