In Response To: Gauges (Bill's neon)


Hello Responders,

Thanks for all the info. I appreciate all of it. I like to make and do things myself as much a possible, and i also like to know that i will get what reading i need out of it. All research on this end. I borrowed a ol' Transco Televac 2 from a friend, hooked it up the the pumping arm and I pulled down to about 2 microns ultimate. And I'll have to ask the owner if the gauge goes below that on his system.... maybe that is the max the needle goes... hey i hope you two know you your banter is entertaining, kind of reminds me of grade school.... he he.
