Looks like a nice unit.. 20 to 9000 Microns, What do you think?
Looks real pretty.

Mine cost me about $137, bought it from a local supplier. If you can get that one for less, you are that much further ahead.

No probleMoe.. I expressed some doubts and he
assured me it works, because the tubing is so malleable..

What do you think?
Well, I didn't know about the angles, that's good to know...

I do know that copper is very forgiving.
