Can't keep track of all the goings-on in this and other industries. eBay is more of a concern to me. As you never know who, what or where an item has come from. Amazon requires a little more skin in the game to list there.
Anyway thanks for the support for all the members that help others so much. The forum has been running since 1997. Pretty good run overall.
I liked the shop on West Clarendon. I believe that over the decades that I've purchased half a dozen AC compressors, one evaporator, a couple of expansion valves, and driers in person at the shop.
My co-worker - on my recommendation - picked up a compressor and drier there for his '90 Protege and I installed it.
When my employer/laboratory in Scottsdale needed a small electric vacuum pump for weekend use, with ALL lab equipment costing a fortune, I suggested a refrigerant vacuum pump. I ordered that, Tim or his worker called back and asked if I wanted to pick this up, but I said no, that it was for work, so ship crosstown. Unfortunately, when they got rid of a bunch of stuff this pump was not on that list, so I didn't end up with it.
But I have two lab vacuum pumps discarded years before (one was claimed to smoke a little, but didn't, plus I use that outside in the garage) and the other was replaced in a free upgrade on an instrument by the service rep, who told me just to do whatever I wanted with it. So those are my AC vacuum pumps.
Thanks for the excellent service Tim, and your loyal customers will stay. Note that most times Tim can obtain stuff not on his page listings, remember to inquire. ACkits.com
