    there is NO reason to have a manifold for each refrigerant.

    I'm making a joke.

    You do wind up with a resolution issue with some refrigerants.

    Hard to read a r134a low temp suction pressure of 1-2# on a R410a low side gauge.

    The system is R404a, but I am using one set R410a gauges (Low side only) because that part of the system cycles between low and high pressure, and the R410a LT gauge has a good intermediate pressure range.

    I agree here to an extend. I like tools! Started out with the old set handed down from my father. I use them on R22 and R12, I still have a truck with R12 and it works. Then I was suspicious of the way my truck A/C was working, so I bought the 134a automotive gauges to check it out. Problem was in the blend door, not charge. Then I started building my house and was going to put in 2 heat pumps, hence the newest addition, the Refco gauges.

    Actually I bought Refco manifold, Refco 5 cfm vacuum pump, and a used Yellow Jacket Micron Gauge 69060. IT IS FREAKING SWEET! Worth every bit of its $170 I gave for it. Retails for around $600.

    ROTHFLMA ...the Digi Cool guys are laughing them selves silly over Refco a thread that they ripped Refco to pieces. It was in very poor taste, but pay no attention. Refco in a robust accurate instrument worth it's salt.

    Who's laughing at his Refco? Lot of people here like them and since you mentioned it a Digi-Cool would mount to it if he ever wanted one sitting on top of the Refco

    My boss bought the green cased refco digital guages that did not even come with low loss hoses??? Comon. They have been in my truck for 6 months, still brand new and never touched. I just know my analogs are accurate.

    And if I could have two of every tool I own I would, just have a duplicate group of tools that look pretty. Maybe one day!
