I'll let you in on a little secret, I never buy any auto parts from Australia unless I absolutely have no other options, tyres for example.

Re: Hyundai Getz aircon troubles

Ive only fixed a handful of car ACs, I always vac them out and replace the refrigerant with LPG, If your not wanting to use LPG you can use Hi chill which if you look on the data sheet is LPG.

Re: Building your own high power laser module for engraving

Seems like a lot of hassle for 7watts, I don't know if you noticed but co2 lasers have come down in price significantly, heres is a 40 watt for $115 I've found that they do last a long time if they are cooled properly with a chiller, not a fish tank pump which is the usual crap they supply it with. ...
