and could you take the gauge of and place it somewhere else like on your chamber and use the blowgun on a piston valve?
i looked at the prices on eBay and they average at $12.99US i can get them for $6NZD and 1NZD=$0.61US so that like $20NZD :!: i thought ebay was cheap and your 12v air compressors are also expensive compared to http://www.trademe.co.nz

I used the exact same thing. Here's the deal:
- It's gonna leak where the hose meets the front end.
- Mine couldn't hold 80 PSI.
- You CAN remove the gauge, but it took me almost two years to do it :shock: Keep it in the freezer overnight before you try to unscrew it and be prepared to break a sweat.
From my experience... it's not worth it.

I got something very similiar to this. It works fine steal the button of the side because i have found they are hard to find and also steal the gauge, You can't do this though if you are hooking it up through the top of the blowgun and not the bottom

It dumps the air to the atmosphere (after the valve).
