Danny, I was formally trained as an industrial fabricator, doing Sheet Metal work was a step back and so much easier for me to do these days......If it is made out of metal, I can build it!!! Now, can you afford me is an entirely different question........

A lot of those old refrigeration units like that have steel lines...I hope you didn't have to deal with that!!!
Bill, it does have a steel coil, but the line set is copper.....For some reason they had about an extra foot of liquid line welded in....It seems like someone was trying to repair it, but did not know how or what to do.......So far all I found was the flared fitting was bent and it was leaking around it and I found a crack in the liquid line was cracked, a quick weld job and I'm holding good so far.....

JckDanls 07, That was some what I planned to do, but one of my coworkers said that their as a cheaper way he runs his, so I'm waiting to see how he is doing his before I make a decision on how to do mind.........

David, Well that is kind of why I had to find something bigger, my wife has banded me from buying anything else to put in the freezer.......We had to rest a chair against the door about a week ago. The freezer has a hi temperature alarm that went off in the middle of the night.......I had just mad a trip to Sam's and well kinda bought some baby back ribs that keep knocking the door open.........All I heard was, YOU better make that thing stop making noise, I'm trying to sleep.............

Great find and getting it on the cheap and fixing it yourself is the only way to go!!!
S2K9K, Well, it is a start..........
