I AM IMPRESSED the FP Micron Gauge and the Manometer cause of the fact they are so easy to use and they are great quality at great prices.
The manometer comes with silicone tube 1/4 stubs for testing gas press. You can insert five foot length 1/8 tubes to check static press. It's just a great convenient, high quality instrument.
The stainless steel barbs accept 3/16 to 1/4 ID tubing.
The micron gauge has low and high vacuum level alarms and you don't have to read the instructions to work it(although I would still read them)
Hanging the meters is no problem as they both have magnetic straps.
Both have easy change batteries. Both have a rugged boot that protect them from a drop (although the housing could probably take a fall with out the boot and still function...my impression, not an FP claim)
I can see these becoming my "Go to Meters"...time will tell.
The best benefit is the support FP give you.
Any time I have a problem FP takes good care of me and they do not hide behind voicemail like some customer service lines I have called.
Who else uses these products and how do work for you?.
Me, I am convinced.
