Gauge Revisit
« on: November 22, 2017, 10:48:47 AM »
Finally got around to taking a photo of the new gauges from Wika. They aren't cheap ($60 delivered each), but they are accurate!!! At least the 6k PSI one is dead on as measured with my Class1 calibrated Wika gauge I paid big bucks for!

The 2k PSI show a bit high in the photo, but this is regulator creep. Its normally set to 1850 PSI.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Best way to answer this is by posting the ordering info.

They don't make a 5k PSI gauge, or I would have order one. I still could have, but at added cost. I didn't mention above, but these are Class 4 gauges. I might add, they're really well made, and react very quickly compared to the ones which were on the rifle when I got it. But of course, they're about 5 times more expensive!

ADDITION 11/23/17

They're 27 mm, but in a nominal placement like the photo shows, the only wrench you can use is an open ended one. There are sockets out there that will fit between the gauges, but I'm not about to pay $200 for a single socket wrench! So I just installed the high side first, thinking it had a bigger chance of leaking. I used a 6-sided socket for that one I bought from AutoZone, and an open end for the low side.

I having a problem trying to mix metric and standard threads. Did not realize until I got into these PCP's, that there is such a thing as metric pipe thread! >:(

There is! If you're like most of us who are "into" airguns, you end up with two complete sets of tools—US and metric. There are a few things, like Torgue wrenches, which are universal, and a few pieces which seemingly work on both measurement standards. However, it is always best to have the correct tool.
