Where can I pick up a gauge for a pressure tester?

Is there anywhere local or online I could order one? Don't need it "paintball" branded or anything like that. Would just like something simple from like 0-1000 psi. I checked grainger, but it doesn't look like they have anything. I'm looking for 1/8, right?

I bought 0-300 psi and 0-600 psi liquid filled gauges from Princess Auto. They were 1/4" NPT input but I just used a reducer to 1/8" NPT.

McMaster-Carr is a sure thing. That is where I bought 3 Ashcroft guages. 2 for my G6R pressure tester and one for my tank regulator pressure tester. Try this link;

McMaster-Carr

You can just call and order with plastic over the phone.

you get what you pay for. buy a high quality gauge, one that has a good +/- for the reading. an ashcroft gauge could be as bad as 10% so if you need 300psi, and you could be as less as 270psi, or as high as 330psi. so if you are wanting exacting pressure, then buy something that has a good rating. if you want cheap, well, you shouldn't have a problem finding one.

Another vote for McMaster-Carr. I bought 3 gauges, one 0-100 and 0-300 for my Victory's pressure tester and one 0-1000 to make a tank tester. The ones I bought had a 1.5" dial, very legible, and pretty cheap - around $12 each. They are Ashcroft brand.

Zdspb.com

Zdspb.com will have it shipped to you in around 2-3 days and they have bigger gauges (more accurate) for what you need.
