    I have the same thought.

    Only way I justify it is that it is 2 in 1, as stated, 1/4 & 5/16. So if you do a fair share of ductless units, it cheaper than buying 2 tools.

    Reliability and repair are yet to be seen. It is probably my next vcrt to ty.
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."

    I’ll add that I haven’t had any issues with my appion vcrts. I tired C and D tool and couldn’t grab the first two cores I tried so it got $*** canned. If you look up Steven rardon on YouTube you’ll find a video of hilmor’s vcrt tool failing completely. Turned me off of them instantly.

    The only time my Appion VCRT's wouldn't remove a shrader is when the system was under a vacuum or the threads were damaged.
    If you were a real tech, you'd solder a relay on that board and call it good to go.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.
