    Rethinking SMAN3 gauges

    I got a pair of these when they first came out, now after replacing the original handles with JB handles in place of the crap from the manufacturers, and later replacing two broken sets of temperature clamps, and now I find an internal leak in the suction gauge. Guess I will have to send them out to be repaired.

    I told my brother to buy a set also, he waited until we though the bugs were out of mine, and bought a pair. His handles broke also he just went old school to repair his.

    Sounds like you are over tightening the valves and the knobs are cracking.
    I had to replace one of mine, and since I do not tighten as hard, I have had no problem.
