    While you are at it put one behind the fridge to maintain the required 2" clearance.

    I'm tired of these mediocre "semi flammable" refrigerants. If we're going to do it let's do it right.
    Unless we change direction we are likely to end up where we are going.

    I was actually taught it was good practice to sand even if brazing… just saying

    speaking of appliances, range manufacturers need to get their heads screwed back on straight. every one I see has the bumpouts in a different spot in back, so evrytime you get a new stove, have to move the plug or it wont go back to wall.

    How do you check micron/vacuum level?

    Worst yet, nothing to be found and out in the country with no cell service so you can't even call to confirm which driveway to pull into.

    Anytime this happens I make sure to mention it sternly to the customer or the wrong house occupants when it get there.
    "I think you have the wrong house."
    "If there was an address anywhere visible, I wouldn't be now would I?"

    Or

    "Sure would make things easier on me or an emergency vehicle if you had an address somewhere!"

    And make sure the numbers on the house are able to be seen color wise, too. Black numbers on a brown house or brass numbers on a yellow house, etc.

    I just might be the only one who did’t already know this by now but maybe not. Go slow with drill bits when drilling think metal. I went through so many bits over the years it’s embarrassing. I just figured they only last a few holes on the tough stuff. I did always use the oil but i was always using high speed on drill. I went through 5 of my 6 drill bits working with stainless plate last year, did some google learning and finished 10 more holes with last bit.
