Kudos and a suggestion

Grok, I decided to risk becoming a "me too" poster and weigh in here with my thanks. You make a fine instrument. One who's usefulness keeps growing.

I received my unit from your last batch late in 2012. One of the last things I did before putting my airhead to bed for the winter was to balance and adjust the carburetors. Winter passed, as it usual does. Two days ago, I turned the key, engaged the choke (I know it's not actually a choke) and pushed the "go" button. The old beast has NEVER started so easily from his post-winter slumber, nor come to an easy idle so quickly! The only thing to which I can attribute this is FINALLY getting the idle mixture right and balancing things out.

The unintended side of this is that I'm eyeing every small engine I own to see if I can install or adapt a vacuum port on it! No, I won't be balancing the lawn mower or old generator, but the ease of use just as a vacuum gauge to tweak the mixture is worth the price.

One final note, and just as a suggestion. I don't think I have ever seen instructions as clear and concise for balancing and tuning a twin cylinder, twin carburetor engine as yours in post 234. It might be very useful to put a link to it in the first post of this thread.

Again, thanks for conceiving and developing such a great tool.

Holy crap guys

In the last 10 hours I received more orders than I can ship in a day.

This batch will likely be sold within a week.

I'm going to have to get serious about producing these things!

It's all due to your sexy marketing plan.

If my "marketing plan" has any appeal, I can assure you it was accidental.
