    I donít know what the normal life span for those may be but I would say that was money well spent. So no recharging or any repair on them over the years? Now this is sounding more like some of my old refrigerators and freezers Iíve had over the years. I replaced them because I wanted something up to date but rarely because they broke down.

    BTW, at what temp does it hold the 2600K under load and what were the clocks?

    I bought a cascade that had a leak on the 2nd stage. It cost about $130 in shipping 1 way the builder piad return shipping. I got it back in about 3 weeks and the gauges were bent and the 1st stage gauge was broken. I suspect it was wrapped a little too tightly with shrinkwrap. I really wanted a new pristine unit as it was costly, but I just cant justify more shipping costs or risk more damage. I hope everything works out better in your case.

    Sorry to hear you had some trouble with your cascade. Whatís the weight of your cascade, they look heavy? Iíd like to have a two stage cascade but my benching budget was stretched very thin, well downright busted, buying the SS. Maybe sometime in the future I can save enough money to buy a two stage?

    Iíve not laid my hand on a cascade but from the pictures Iíve seen it would think safe shipping could be a problem unless they were crated very well. Does your cascade work or has the broken gauge caused a leak?:

    Good luck with yours. Judging by the UPS track my SS should be here sometime Monday afternoon so Iíll start testing with it Tuesday.

    Take pictures of how it's packaged so we can see it.

    It was in a very big, very sturdy crate secured to the bottom with insulation all around it. There is enough room on every side that nothing could have come in contact with it without crushing the crate, and the crate is fine. I dont think it's leaking, but I've noticed decreased performance that is hopefully due to cold ambient temperatures. Ron is sending me a fan/pressure switch that will hopefully fix it if that's the problem.
