hi,
I would like to get in line for the loaner program. I have never actually gauged my draft. I want to make sure I have enough draw as I have the baro set at .04 and it hardly ever moves except in the wind is up.

Hi fishhunter, send me a PM with phone number and address, there is about a three week wait for the next available unit (I have three in circulation), thanks. :)

The manometer loaner program is hereby suspended until further notice for new "loanies". I have lost three units since last year and can no longer spend the time to track down people and ask them (repeatedly in some cases) to send the manometer on to the next person in line. This suspension of the program does not apply to those 8 families that are in line for the three units that are out there for circulation to the next person.

Sorry for any inconvenience this might cause, I would be interested in passing this program on to who ever has the time to keep track/followup on making sure the units get to the next person, answer phone questions on how to use the units and provide replacement units when the ones in circulation get "lost". I would estimate you would need an available 5 to 8 hours per week to do this, If no one takes it over it will terminate once the last person on the current waiting list is served.

Thank you. :)

This would be a great endeavor for one of you retired guys. I don't have the time or I would take it on.

It really steams me that units are "lost!" "Lost" is nice speak for someone stole them!!! Shame on you. Here the forum loaned you manometers to help you set your draft in order to keep you and your family safe and optimize your coal usage and you thank us by stealing them!!!???It's a good thing Matt won't tell me who has them. Man up and return them now. Karma is a bitch you know. :mad: :mad: :mad:

Let's get 'em. :chop: I have nothing better to do. Besides Chris DVC 500 at Last has been kicking me in the ass to get a barometric damper and get rid of the manual damper.
