Hey Bret.... Hey Bob..... Hope ypu huys are doing better!
heres to counting down Bret! 1 Month!
Hey Canknuckleheads! check this out..... changing out a compressor with a new kid.... we were adjusting the charge. Almost done.... Our owner walks up and hands me a key to a place in 4x4 land and tells me about it. Then..... wants to know where my digital gauges are!! (me)I dont have any....(him) well thats going to change! He tells me he wants s/h and s/c and pressures and temps written down. Asks me if I was using service facts... I pulled the sheet out from my clipboard... ask me how I am adjusting the charge,,, told him.... asks my new kid if he is asking questions.... I said yes and I was answering them and asking him questions! I was on my game. But I was a bit miffed about the digital gauges. I think to many ppl rely on them and a lot of techs dont even understand how to charge a system with analog gauges and thermometers. So if you can teach a newbie how to the old fashioned way.... he should understand whats going on with digital right??? Sheesh!Silent Service........ Death From Below!

I can't believe we are having this discussion in 2009.....I got my first Fluke DMM in '81 and we are still 'gonna do $hit the ol fashioned way'......for what reason.....to be less accurate and save money......
Our brothers in the mechanical trade have tool cabinets with $60-80,000.00 worth of tools and we whine about spending $2500/yr on tools....any wonder electricians and plumbers call us 'prima-donnas'
There, that felt better....I'll go put my soap box away now...

For your information, I saw the tractor just fine.
I also did a test. I showed those pictures with alleged cars and bows and what-not to my wife last night.
She was able to see the other stuff just fine. She called me a PIG and slapped me.

And, I'm one of those guys who spends a LOT more than $2,500 a year on tools. This year, it will be a real burden, because I lost $17,000 in tools when the truck was stolen.
Technology is great, but I meet far too many kids that can't make change at the Mc D's when the "change" key on the register stops working.
