Just a quick note to say hello. My name's Christopher and I've been lurking around here for a few days. I'm currently a student at North East State Community College in Blountville, Tennessee, learning the refrigeration trade.
I've only got about 8 more weeks before they throw me in the deep end, but if I can figure out where to put it (and if it's appropriate) I might start a thread about my experiences so far, maybe help some of those folks who are like me, just getting started, to keep from making some of the same mistakes I have (i.e. giving the instructor a face full of phosgene gas (Sorry Rick!) while taking out a 4-way reversing valve).
At any rate, hope you're all well,
