    Re: propress

    you ain't seen nothing till you used an original 400 with a set of 4'' rings

      Re: propress

      [QUOTE=seanny deep;363063]Concerns about this pex issue iv run into are starting to affect my sleep, with a ten month old boy i cant afford any more lost sleep. So im kinda convinced propress might be the only fisable solution.
      Im pretty limited on funds " k 750, k 45, k 60, m12 expander tool, cordless makita kit, ect ect" this year so pretty tapped as far as tool allowance goes and chrismas, wifes bday sons bday ect ect if you guys were gona by a propress tool 1/2 and 3/4" for know maybe 1" to, what brand and model would you reccomend also what brand fittings?. How much more are fittings and how do you usually plumb your houses when using propress, old run and branch im guessing just curious? Time wise how long does it take to make a joint? Are any of you plumbing whole houses in propress? Anyways just playing with the idea trying to get a ppicture or price of what i can expect to spend.
      I mentioned this before Seanny. In My town a pawn shop has an older large elec. pro press. box n tools looks clean, lightley used. He said $700 or $750 i think. Bet He'd take $550. If You want I'll stop by Sat and check to see if its still there. I could get info n picture. It's heavy!
      I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

        Unless you're talking "live steam", I've never had an issue with water heating boilers. In fact its been nothing short of a money making machine when it comes to swapping out tank type water heaters for a nice Laars Pennant or Neo-Therm boiler. When you're working with everything from 3/4" up to 4" the ProPress is almost like using a magic wand when you're under the gun to get the hot water back on.

          Seanny,
          If this is the CT400, I'd jump on it. Its a great way to get your feet wet with ProPress. Besides, when you walk onto a job with that big mutha on your shoulder, you'll feel like the Terminator. And when you slam the pin that holds the press ring into place it sounds like you're charging a .50 cal machine gun. All told when you have a ProPress, you are the man. You can handle any job, big or small in a matter of minutes, and my customers not only like that, they expect it.
