    Re: Using old ferrule and nut with new angle stop valve

    HEY DUCK; AND ALL OTHERS
    IN CASE YOU MISSED THIS IS A SHE NOT A HE !
    AND WHO SAID A PHARMACIST IN LITTLE ROCK,
    ARK, MAKES AS MUCH MONEY AS A PLUMBER IN
    NEW YORK CITY! !
    GIVE THE LADY A BREAK ! !
    THE CORRECT ANSWER IS YOU REMOVE THE OLD ANGLE STOP AND TAKE THE NEW ANGLE STOP NUT AND SEE IF IT WILL SCREW ONTO THE OLD ANGLE STOP? ?
    SOME TIMES THESE HAVE DIFFERENT THREAD
    PATTERN THAT ARE NOT INTERCHANGEABLE !
    BUT IF THAT DO FIT TOGETHER ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ADD A LITTLE TEFLON PASTE OR OTHER THREAD LUBRICATE TO SCREW ON TO THE OLD NUT AND FERRELL

      Re: Using old ferrule and nut with new angle stop valve

      Thanks Herk- I had no idea it could be that simple (how embarrassing), and I don't have my new valve with me ...

      Thank goodness I don't have to worry about that issue anymore ...

      Well, it's time for me to get to work





      p.s. I love all these different smileys!

        Now, if this was running a new gas line, I would agree with you guys. Some of you guys toot your own horns to much.

        Are you A.S.E. certified? If not, according to your own views, your a automotive hack taking work away from A.S.E. certified individuals.
        Hmmmm... that's a good point. I'll have to consider not doing work that requires A.S.E. certifications.

        Aaron. What questions did you ask of the original posters' qualifications before offering advice?

        And while were at it, are you still doing that illegal unpermitted sidework that you posted pics of on this forum?

          I was more focused on his extensive experience running a shop, covering an ad budget and overhead.
          He knows, silly of me to question that.

            J.C. Yes at one time I did do side work, but I wasn't taking anything away from the trade, since I'm a full time plumber myself. Now if I was doing hvac side work, yes I would be taking away from the trade. But now that I'm in the local, side work is a big no no, so to answer your question, no I don't.

            Duck/Mark I never have, nor said I could run a shop. Thats a completely different topic.

              It's pertinent to the view on offering "charitable" advice.
              If you knew how daunting it is to operate a business, with homeowners almost threatening to do the work themselves if your price is too high, you'd understand.

              As for the income basis, the argument being that if a homeowner is down and out with an emergency situation it's a kind thing to help them out.
              I'm not in the business of offering anyone advice when they're using my advice to skip paying someone like me...especially not when they make substantially more than I do.

              Point me in the direction of a pharmacist that'll give me a break on my wifes MS meds and I change my tune.
              The health insurance for both of us is $1200 a month by the way...I don't feel so charitable when I break out the checkbook then.

              How 'bout a doctor that'll offer free consultations or MRI's so we can skip the insurance altogether?

              ok, then maybe just a mechanic for help replacing my transmission....so I can afford her meds.

              Here's your opportunity to debate me and look like the hero for homwowners everywhere...shine on....shine on.

              The key question though...do you even pay rent yet?

                Giving advice on changing an angle stop is not taking any money out of anyone's pocket. This is minor plumbing that most people should be able to handle. Is anyone going to die on this one? This isn't a W/H, boiler, gas appliance or the such. The worst that can happen is that she doesn't tighten the nut enough and the stop shoots off spilling hundreds of gallons of water in her bathroom ,flooding the place. If that's what pedal wants to do to save a few bucks, then let her. There's bigger fish to catch than an angle stop replacement.
                Buy cheap, buy twice.

                  I disagree.

                  When you point me to a pharmacist that will offer me a discount on meds, I'll agree.

                    Don't quite understand Aarons recent confrontationalism and seeming animosity.

                    Duck. Maybe there's a Rx forum with some help. No, it's probably being watched by law enforcement. Or even worse, the PHARMACEUTICAL LOBBYISTS!

                      I know where you can get Cialis and Viagra for about a 1/10th of the cost. Does that count?

                                I was being serious, too. Funny and serious. Two for one!

                                Dunbar - I have bought from a good reputable company about a year ago. They don't have the typical meds that doctors prescribe, but they do carry Cialis and Viagra (and they test their products for purity). I didn't buy either one of those, but what I bought was even more expensive than what those two go for retail!

                                I'm not trying to push anything, but if I can repay someone that has helped me out in the past, I would be honored. Of course, the stuff is for "research purposes only"
