I like the adaptor to connect the reg direct to a dive bottle. Even with a broom handle in the cylinder, I have wasted an awful lot of air fine tuning reg pressures.
You need to leave it for 12 hours to see if there is creep. You can get them set up so that they appear to settle nicely, 12 hours later they are 200 to 300 psi higher.
I'd forgotten where that EV2 action had gone...
Nice one Phil, I'm with Neil on the waste of air thing, and the amount of time wasted with emptying and re-filling. I keep threatening to make a reg tester for my ev2 but not sure if I would trust my turning skills with the internal threads and 200 bar in the cylinder.
Do you always aim for such a low pressure? I reckon mine is at about 105 bar.
Simple £4 adaptor for your home made Reg tester
I took advice from the master . Re pressure .
Which bit is £4 ?
Ahh fair enough.
I'd hazard a guess that it's the short length of hex bar with a suitable threads cut either end.
ev2 reg r the devils brew
errrrrr..............and the reg
Nah, piece of cake, they just need setting up proper.
I've still got the barrel if you're looking for it
Makes sense, I think Dave means £4 and then you make it yourself, which still means cutting internal threads.
Yup, and that's the bit I don't have the knowledge, tools or skill to do.
Knowledge and skills ...................very over rated
give me a steyr reg anyday
This is genius
You definitely need to make one, and possibly a couple more just to make sure that the first one was not a fluke, and then you probably need some willing experimenters to test the veracity of these new EV2 Genius units..... ahem... just sayin, that's what I think.
Holly manages just fine without both...
I've got the tools that's for sure, the knowledge, yep got that, the skills, ermm maybe bot not the bottle. If it was just a thread, no problem but a thread with 200 bar pushing down on the newly cut threads, not a good way to find out how good or not you have done them.
