    If I can get small drops of ice forming between the fins and the drain pan I know I have the temp control dialed in perfectly!

    Why is that method better than just going with the factory charge? It seems like thats a little extra work and labor. What are we gaining?

    Measuring oz is difficult. Also you cut the cap tube that changes the charge. Someone else may have cut the tube before you. You changed the drier now it probably larger, more charge.

    Old Beef aging boxes were like that. Fancy ones had 2 or 3 fins per inch!

    So those were like a hydronic coil ? This one was just copper lines with no fins.
