    Harbor Freight alligator clips

    Why buy a new 100+ board when the local Horror Fright has colored 24 gauge alligator clips for 5 dollars?

    The whip and connectors for the high voltage entering the unit looks... interesting. Is that a piece of PVC in there?

    The rubber insulators over the clips are almost impossible to grab & that makes them very unsafe. I use them very little for some of my low voltage control work but they are a waste of money to me. The clip insulators (covers) are like trying to grab jello they are so slick.

    Probably one of those, "I got you cooling temporarily, I'll send you the estimate to replace the board later", then never hear back from the customer. Did that once, but never again.

    i would have taken the time to run the temp wires though the knock out in the divider wall in the unit at least
    so what is the story on this unit?
