    Air Gauges

    Bought some air gauges from McMaster-Carr. I am looking for an adopter for the back side so I can use them in a jet? I have some but in a different jet. I do not remember where I got the adopter.

    RE: Air Gauges

    I tried those gauges and the problem is, after you add the adapter, they are not only big, but heavy too - and they don't really save you many $'s over the ones you can get from Dreamworks...

    Yep... What he said. Besides.... 1/8" barbed fittings are too big. You need 1/16" for air hose.

    The weight does not bother me. I can see the larger ones better. Thanks for the help on the adopters.

    I read it as $20 each if you buy two, or more.

    RE: Air Gauges

    Has anyone come across a more compact (smaller face) gauge than the 29/32" dia ones we typically use?

    The smallest I've found is here: http://www.miniaturepressuregauge.com/

    I inquired about getting them in a rear mount and they came back with the following notes:

    For steam driven models we only manufacture these in bottom connection

    ½” ranges: 0-80psi, 0-100psi & 0-120psi

    If you want 0-150 psi, you will need to have ¾” or 1” diameter pressure gauges

    1/2" Pressure gauge for steam driven models,
    Supplied with nut & tail piece.
    Price: 10 off @ 20.00 each or 1-9 @ Β£24.00 ech

    3/4" Pressure gauge for steam driven models, reading 0-150psi,
    Supplied with nut & tail piece.
    Price: 1 x 9 off @ Β£20.00 each

    Price: (Pounds Sterling)
    Delivery: 10 days

    Wondering if there are other options out there in a similar size?

    RE: Air Gauges

    Don: Ron, Lance, & I have the same gauges, and have had good luck with this push on style connector for years. Works great with BVM air tubing. I think this is the correct order number, but double check the sizes.

    McMasters catalogue page 186, part #5779K123.
