It will bleed the section to the gauge while the tank section remain pressurized

It must be hard to remove the tank/reg while it's still pressurized.

Built this because I suck at sweet spotting by hand.

Judging by the gage, my series5 with all stock pneus likes a 350psi input.

Not really. Give it a half turn to stop the tank reg from being depressed, and then toggle the slide check multiple times to bleed what is left in the tester.

Then unscrew the tank like normal. Viola!

It was always my thought that, while liquid filled gauges can be more accurate, they cannot react as quickly as needed for testing recharge rates. So a good quality Ashcroft gauge works just fine.

Need a gauge?

Bookmarked. When I have some cash I plan to make one :]

I'm having a heck of a time finding the 1/8" male to male and a 1/8" female to female adapters. Tried Home Depot and the smallest they had was 1/4". I've done a google search with no luck either. Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
BK
