    Yes. I usually just use 2x6 to get the pad off the ground protecting it from the weed whipper. In this case there is considerable fill going in so I used 2x8s.

    Cool! It looked like regular wood, is why I asked.

    You've done an awesome job on this install also Sir.

    +1 on the Hilmor stuff. I now own the vac pump, flaring tool, and tubing benders. All 3 are top notch.

    You guys need to focus. We need a tape that seals this stuff properly at our supply house. It doesnt compress back like the crappy black stuff does. I leave a 2' gap or so while Im brazing which leaves piecing in. White electrical tape is the best thing I have found.

    I usually pull it back as far as I can and I use some my vuce grips to hold it and have it wrapped with damp rag so it doesn’t get to hot but yes ur right sometimes there is a need for tape

    To the OP or anybody else that would care to answer, do you not have any concern of filling your micron gauge with refrigerant when you open the service valves? Or, maybe micron gauges are capable of that type of exposure without damage and I've never taken the time to RTFM.
