I don't have the tools to do that anymore, I used to have a shop I could work in, but at 75 now, and hands that ache from tendinitis, I can't pick up a wrench w/o it hurting me anymore.

Yes, it cost me a whole month's Social Security check, but at least I know the job is done right.

And not owning a freon recovery system, makes it impossible to pressure up, find a leak, suck it back out.... I have to let it blow off to the air, then buy more of that expensive stuff.
