Thought I would share a recent comment,

"Hi Bob.  I just want to let you know how happy I am with my vacuum pump.  All the parts and pieces went together very well.  I can't believe I put up with my air compressor Venturi system for so long. This pump is a game-changer for me.  Tom H. Orangevale, California"
