BTW Noname i found 300psi guages for $7 at HD in Vegas. They seemed decent as well, not crappy.

What time do they close? 8pm-ish?

Speaking of screw in schrader valves, if you haven't found one yet, I got one at Lowes in the hot water heater department near the pressure relief valves and it was only about $4.

Okay sweet, thanks for that I'll keep a look out. I may get a QEV of McMaster and delivered to our Hotel in San Fran. McMaster is pissing me off at the moment, can anyone give me the code number for a 4" SCH 40 nsf-pw end cap and a sch 40 nsf-pw 3" plug?

Thanks.

I notice everyone says 'knee-san' instead of Nissan here, it's weird as :lol: In NZ we say 'nis-san' but it probably sounds like 'nis-sin' to you guys.

As I said before could somebody give me the code number for a 4" SCH 40 nsf-pw end cap and a sch 40 nsf-pw 3" plug on McMaster?

BTW I'm currently in San Fran now.

While it is usually the only PW fitting over 2" they have, Lowes often has 3" and 4" PW caps.

Have you tried the public trans there?
Its quite a trip.
Lots of fun.
If your still there I suggest you visit Haight street.
Go to a store called Amoeba's music, you might like it?

Thought you only had $700 :wink: . What movies and DVDs did you get? And what are you getting from McMaster?

It's loads of fun reading this thread. :D. Also, when do you go back to NZ?
