What gauges do you use?
Yet another tools post lol, a recent reply prompted my to ask about this. So what kind ok gauges do you prefer? I know some like the digi cool, two port, four port, what ever. Just tryin to get an idea of what is good on the market. Post pics if availible.
this is the only one i could find at this time i think its kinda big, i don't remember, we'll see lol
a LOT of buttons lol. would deff take some gettin used too. im guessing they are accurate, and what is that cap for on the right? i guess it tells you all of the service stuff, superheat, subcool, etc.
I have the same set. 4 port Titan Manifold with 3/8 vacuum port. The cap on the right is where you attach the temperature probe lead. FWIW, after setting units and display contrast, the only buttons I ever use on this thing are the refrigerant selection buttons, the power button and the mode button (switchs between actual line temp, SC, SH readings). Not complicated at all. The integrated temperature reading feature is more convenient than using a separate temperature measuring instrument, and the sensor type used is more accurate than K type thermocouples.

Yep, it's a chunk of change, but well worth every penny. So far this is the "only" digital instrument purchase that I've felt completely comfortable with.
This is what i use.

Yellow jacket analog gauges with additional valves for my convenience and to make my job easier.
Just make sure you have at least 2 sets, one favorite like a digital and one for spare or throwdown set.

So far i have my fav, the JB 2 port with the NRP glycerin gauges. I also have a set of YJ btute 2, i retired them for the JB 2 ports, and i have an old set of two port NRP. Next will be a set of 410a gauges.
