Build an LPR tester

EDIT: Paintballer187 has a great priced tester for sale, with high quality parts. I'd get this one...You can see from the cost fo components that he is doing you a favor! http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...5#post26782885

Part #s are from Mcmaster.com
1. Tubing: 5233K51
2. Barb: 5121K35
3. Tester Body: 4429K259
4. Gauge <- any 1/8" NPT will do: 38105K32
5. Bleed valve/plug
Bleed valve: 4886K21 Nptf Male Inlet X Nptf Female Outlet
Plug: 9171K251

Install by screwing the barb, plug, and gauge into the body. Loctite if desired. Hook your LPR connection to the barb. Read pressure and adjust to desired. Don't go over 100psi for assembly. If you have the bleed valve installed, purge system before disconnecting hose from barb. You can test the cycling of the gun by installing a second barb ($3 gets you a 10pack) on the end of the bleed valve and hooking into the solenoid, with the valve opened.

While you're shopping mcmaster, do yourself a favor and pick up Oring pick 7388A33.

Disclaimer: Have not tested this. Part #'s all appear to match up. If you turn it up to 120psi and something blows, it's your fault, not mine.

Hope this helps some people.

So about $30 by the time you pay shipping. Personally I would just get the one on EBay for $40 and not have to worry about "If you turn it up to 120psi and something blows, it's your fault, not mine." Exploding brass and plastic does not sound fun t just save $10.

It's not so bad, without the bleed valve. I don't imagine there would be an issue, I'm just covering myself in something I have not tested. At Onyx LPR pressures, I'd say the parts are very safe.

Shipping is a pain, but no one balked at it for the O-ring thread.

EDIT: Updated with a link to pb187's tester. Get that one.
