angel, its not used for checking, its used for adapting, you screw the adapter into the reg tester, and then you can screw whatever reg or tank you want onto the adapter, thats now installed into the tester
For the price of the adapter, you can come pretty close to building a completely separate unit meant for checking normal ASA threads. Also, by the time you go through all that trouble with the adapter, you've defeated the purpose of buying this specialty piece of equipment since you have to replace the 200 psi gauge with something with a much larger range. I know I personally can't tell the difference between 130, 135, and 140 psi on say a 600 psi gauge.
Bottomline is if you have a Dye gun, this is a useful tool to have in your toolbox. Sure, it'll work better with a higher quality 0-200 psi gauge but it is better than nothing. If you have a standard ASA threaded reg, build your own even if you also have a Dye gun.
