    Well, any micron gauge is better than no micron gauge.

    But I would've spent the extra money on the accutools bluvac. It's an amazing piece of equipment. Just my opinion.

    As far as I know the two best gauges available are the yellow jacket and bluevac.

    I use the yellow jacket and love it despite the price tag...

    I've been using the bluvac for the last 2 months. Very accurate compared to some of the other micron gauges. Especially the leak rate indicator. Money well spent.

    bought the blu vac & after using it for a couple of months gave away
    4 others i had been using also take a look at the accu tool scale.
    all top shelf products.

    Just picked up the jb super nova, tho if the blue vac was available I would have liked to have that one. I like the leak rate indicator feature.

    I just picked up a DVN 22. Used it twice very impressed with it, seems it does everything the bluevac lite does.

    How does anyone really know how accurate the gauge is ?
    you cant test it like you can a temp clamp

    I used the bluvac for a bit but got rid of it. It irked me. i then bought a yj 69075 & i like it. Previous to that i used the supco & I'm wondering how inaccurate it's been previous to switching . . . These are hooked to the same system sitting off after 20 min

    I don't trust the Super Nova that we have in the shop. I use a JB DVN 22. I'd rather my micron gauge error high, if it's going to error. Bluevac sounds tempting, but have have to buy most of the tools I need before i start replacing ones that still work.
