I am installing 24" diameter duct for a spray booth in my shop. It looks like the traditional round snap lock duct work but the connection is a type that I have never seen. the edges are bent in "opposing hooks" but it does not seem secure enough to simply hook them together. Maybe the connection seam has to be crimped? I have a picture that I sent via email...
Yes, this is a very good and reliable seam, but you can't put it together the way you would put together ducts with snap-lock seams.
For this one you have to secure at list 3" black iron pipe to the bench, leave out a bit longer than your sheet metal pipe is. As I remember this size (24") pipes usually no longer than 30".
Put the pipe on it, put pipe together and hammer it down with a hammer or for the best result use a mallet because a hammer may leave some dents.
The technique described above we used for the smaller diameter pipes. For your pipes it could be done much easier: put a pipe together on the concrete floor and roll it till a seam is on the bottom. Hammer it down from the inside.

Lowest hvac unit for basement.
Rheem is making pretty small furnaces only 34" tall.
My central air went out a few weeks ago. My air & furnace are 23 years old. I have been told by 2 different companies my air would be to expensive to repair for it’s age. I want to sell my home in a few years so makes since to me to replace both. I have had estimates by 4 different companies. The costs have been pretty close with in 1.000. They have given me quotes on a varied of products, how can I know which is the way to go. I have proposals on Trane, Carrier, Payne, American Standard, and Rheem & Duncan. I have no desire to just pay for a name but I also want to pay for a good unit. Any wisdom on this you could give would be much appreciated. Is there a site I can go to or would you have an opinion on these brands. I read Rheem furnace is good but not their air?
Ask your friends/neighbors on which contractors they like. Look for reviews online. Ignore positive reviews, and read the negative. Ignore any that seem to be from whiny people, and pick the contactor with the fewest series negative reviews/year.
My return grill is on the floor is that OK?
All those brands are OK. Goodman is on the cheaper end of things. Trane is on the more expensive end. American standard is owned by Trane and is generally cheaper. Generally the quality of the unit represents its price, but things get really expensive on the upper end. I'd recommend something right in the middle.
No, this is old and stupid design put it on the wall.

One of my ''U'' shape duct vent make a metallic noise (must be a small screw or something from the construction). It's annoying and I don't want to finish the gypsum before I fix this.
I was wondering if I can just drill a small hole through the duct vent in order to withdraw the metallic thing and then just put a tape to patch the hole. Drill it on the side where the surface is flat; stick a flexible magnet in to try to get the object. The make metal hole plugs to push into the hole. So go to the hardware store first and get a plug, then drill your hole that size, pop plug in when done and stick some duct tape over it to help keep it in place. Just hope that the foreign object is metal, if not you will be doing all of this for nothing.
