    It's a well known fact that 3 out of every 4 is a packing screw.

    Slightly off topic, we had a line of old kysor warren coffin freezers in a supermarket

    The shop fitters came in one night and fitted sign brackets to the top of the divider down the centre.

    They put a screw through the anti sweat heaters and tripped the breaker.

    The lucky bastard managed not to get zapped

    i replaced a compressor contactor on an old whip bench where the compressors electrical control bucket snaps into buss bars behind it....I drove my screw straight into a live 277 volt bar, sparks flew. I've done the screw through the evap too

    I've always said they're over rated.

    Tripp....don't worry about it...you said the right thing '...I learned something'. I know a lot of guys who would have ran and said '......wwwhhaatt screw!!!??? ...don't know a thing about it'.
    Been doing this for over twenty years...learned a few lessons like this in my time.
    once you think you know everything, you'll never learn another thing!
