    Who makes the best depressor tool?

    I’m thinking about trying one of those depressor tools instead of low loss fitting for my high side hose. The Accutools depressor looks just like the yellow jacket. Then there’s C&D. Any experience with them?

    The Accutools is made by Accutools. They have actually made a few improvements to it since the initial design. It has a different gasket design, no double o-rings, providing a much better seal, and a larger plunger that makes it much easier to operate as well as an offset side port. They are a solid product.
    JLB,

    Jim were you talking about the core remover or depressor?

    The BBK core depressors are by far the most superior. They'll cost you an arm and a leg, but they are so smooth and easy to use.

    Geeze, don't they teach you anything in yankee school? It's Japanese, link was just to show the actually fitting. Here in Aus they are worth around $120. They are probably only $30 in the land of the trade war though.

    I recently bought the CPS depressor tools. I haven't used them yet, I bought them to have on hand in case needed. The immediate thing I noticed is that they're tiny. Surprisingly so, including the knobs. I almost returned them, although I'm not sure their size will be a factor...may even be helpful in tight spots. If I ever use them, that is.
