Appion Core Tool DOA
I just bought a set of two Appion Core tools. One of them has a ball valve that is not fully aligned with the handle. IOW, fully opening the handle doesn't get you a fully open bore. This causes the core removal stem to catch on the interior of the ball valve. It does slide in and out, but it is off enough to be a problem...

sure they would gladly swap them out for you.

got them on Ebay through seller JSPhilly (Johnstone)
They should take care of it.
I just was wondering if anyone else had seen this?

All my Appion Core tools have been perfect; I'm sure they will take care of it. On another note does anyone know where I can get replacement seals for the Appion Core tool?

Are you all using the Appion Core tool for quicker evacuation times?

Appion, is your factory in Englewood or is that just where you are? I always like to support local business and I sure have enjoyed my Appion core removal tool.

I recently bought a pair from JStone. Used them on a job yesterday and couldn't pull a vacuum below 700mc. Put N2 pressure on the system and one of the core remover tools was LEAKING! Guess that I will have to contact JStone for a replacement.

Feel free to contact us directly as well should you not get taken care of right away, as I personally would like to review any core tools not operating as we expect them to... if it ain't tight, it ain't right.Christian Pena - Appion Inc.
