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.
My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.
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.
Ya know what I do, so my vote would definitely be yes.
Help my George Foreman aint working....
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.
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!
Well, this is good
I expected to get the old "No Way"
There is an old saying... "know more, do more, bill more"
Any one else?
No Way!!! Are you NUTZ?
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.
