    If you have small arms, how do you comb your hair?

    Hey Guys!

    Last I checked there was a fly.Unfortunately,the hair's too short to warrant combing!
    Bought Doolan's Troubleshooting Guide and reading what I can out of that.Also bugging the maintenance guys at my complex.Johnstone SHOULD be having a sale next month on manifold sets.Don't know about the combo 22/410 set.Was going to buy an R22 set W/O the 3/8's evac line and buy the extra 60 " hoses.Plan on buying a 410 set later on.Is Yellow Jacket better than Imperial?Do I need just the R22 and R410 manifold sets?My teacher said that the company typically provides the vacuum pump,recovery unit and peanut rig.I have worked at a radiator shop,done electrical construction and was an Interior Comm. Electrician in the USN,so I do have some technical experience.Realize that I have alot to learn in the AC trade and that what they teach in school is not necessarily what's done on the job!Thanx for any constructive feedback-acnoob.

    Peanut Rig:

    "To rig the peanut tie a treble hook to a three foot piece of line, then thread three or four beads
    ( plastic, glass what every you prefer) onto the line. The beads should rest at the eye of the hook.
    Then slide the peanut down the line to rest at the beads. ( the end of the peanut that is cut at a 45 is
    to be facing your rod tip) On the other end of the line tie a snap swivel. I hook the swivel to the split
    ring that holds the hook on the attractor. I find that some days the attractor spoon must be a big
    flashy spoon and on other days a small dull spoon is best. That is all there is to rigging the peanut."






    So, who is your intructor?

    I might know him.

    Ask him if he knows a fat bald HVAC instructor at Tyler Junior College.



    Oh, I almost forgot--- welcome!

    Welcome acnoob. I'm a semi-newbie on the forum myself, old timer in the biz though.

    You can learn a lot 'round here, enjoy the ride.

    Doesn't ring a bell.
    I might know him if I see him.
    I wouldn't know him if he's adjunct faculty (part time).

    I make most of the WECM meetings, plus TCCTA.

    My bio is in my profile.

    We have almost the same program as yours.

    Don't expect to learn everything sitting on your backside in a classroom.
    Learning this trade requires effort on your part.
    Take your tools to class, including your brain.

    Use them, especially the last one.

    Don't be afraid to post on this forum.
    Good luck.
