OH wow its Gerard I thought chuck found some place you had to trench the fiber with a spoon. You seem to be as sporadic on these lists as me.

back to the subject at hand. I recently picked up a Trensbatter no thats not a typo at least on my part. Its a clone of a Fujikura 60s. I have used Fujikuras for some time so I am used to the interface. It is a pretty good knock off. Only thing is the splice holders are not made to be used in the cleaver then moved to the splicer. It was a little annoying at first. After I got used to just moving the fiber from cleaver to splicer I found I actually could get it where the bare fiber was much smaller. all in all for less than 2k it has been pretty good.

We have a few of the Ruiyan RY-F600P core alignment fusion splicers from eBay. They're basic, but get the job done. Perfect for our install techs.

    Good info, I'm not sure how the 12S compares to the 19S
    (replacement for 18S).

        The spec sheet lists everything in Kit #2. Charger, cleaver,
        and carrying case are all on the list.

        Is that with a cleaver and battery? Pretty good price for a
        fujikura. I paid about twice that for my 18S a few years ago.

                found some info on the list but it was about 2 years
                ago so I thought
                I'd ping again and see if there's any new info out
                there.

                Looking for recommendations on the E-bay variety
                fusion splicers (ie:
                $3-5k)  - wondering what people have tried and
                liked?  IE the Eloik
                ALK-88 http://www.eloik.org/products/ALK_88.html
