We don't have to put the clean outin down here. I would like to know how you like those j stle waste hangers and if there are any prblems using them.

The other part about what makes the J hooks useful is that you can "pre-hang" them and they'll support the pipe while you're assembling it. No need for a helper on the other end.

jjbex, I keep looking at your stuff and saying "this guy "thinks" just like I do. All the little details that are so important to me, you do.

But it's more than that. It's how you run your pipe. Which fittings you use where. That kind of stuff. Lean and clean. Like it should be.

Thanks,
that means a lot. Respect from my peers means a lot. I did a job at a nuke last year and the site contact guy was so impressed he took multiple pictures of where I hung two pass through electric heaters. I managed to make identical installations, I even bent tubing the same. This guy was making copies of the pictures and passing them out at project meetings. That was nice. Even though I am 45 years old, a pat on the back really feels great.

Yes,
Local 422, Joliet, Illinois. One of my first instructors impressed upon us the importance of using 45's where ever possible. His brother had us solder cleaned and uncleaned pipe fittings, then cut the fittings off lengthwise with a hacksaw. We then could see the difference that makes. But what struck the most was how easy you could sand the tin off a uncleaned joint, compared to a cleaned joint.
