What about using a contents gauge off an old welding gas regulator or similar for a low cost/no cost option. Oxygen Argon etc. gauges go up to 3 or 4000 PSI. should be enough pressure surely?

It's the bleeding out that's the problem on most gauges though I'm also looking at T pieces with bleed nipples to possibly address that . Also need to be able to swap ends to metric or UNF ...a plan is forming as I type this :)

Ive done this in the past with a guage from a normal hydraulic supplier. Youll need one that reads up to 1500 psi but generally i would think 1000 psi do. From metric to imperial make a short bundy brake pipe with imp on one end and metric on the other :smoke:

Hey guys guess what,

I AM A NORMAL HYDRAULIC SUPPLIER AND THAT MEANS I CAN GET THINGS CHEAPER THAN MOST OTHER HYDRAULIC SUPPLIERS.

hi kev, si (roadrunner) orded a gauge from ebay, it was about a £5, i then had flexy made with a brake fitting on on end, i then made short brake pipes (metric or none metric) which ever you need for the caliper, worked well, as you may remember i need it for my brake problem and it did the job,
