    I own the Supernova, I have compared its reading with my Thermal 14571 and they are almost identical.

    I have only the Yellow Jacket "Deluxe LED" part number 69060. I trust it. Usually anything with a thermocouple vacuum sensor is more reliable/accurate than thermistor vacuum sensors.

    valdelocc How old is your DV-40? I had two DV-40's close to when they came out and they were both where a joke compared to my Thermal. I only ever saw reading in the same ballpark when to was a hot summer day.

    if i do a small res split

    i just put the micron gauge on the high side only, no hose.

    then vacuum from the suction side.

    this way i trust the micron gauge reading.

    as for which one is correct?

    who knows?
    are they both temperature compensated?

    I bought it used, lightly used. EBAY, about $170 shipped! Do not be too judgmental, I was using my manifold to evacuate. I did get around 300 millitorr on each unit. Called it good enough, they are my units.

    Thanks for taking the time to make the videos and posting! I guess trust no vacuum gauge.
    My question though is..... Which vacuum gauge will you continue to use?
    I would love to hear what Accutools would say about the video.

    I had doubt in micron gauges as well so I did some non-scientific tests. My conclusion.. THey all like to read differently.. Some are way further off then others.. In my experience that Supernova gauge is JUNK..
