Question Anyone loan Angle A1 gauges?

Do I have a shot at finding someone who can loan out the tuning gauges, or am I stuck buying $60 worth of gauges to use maybe twice-ish?

thanks guys

HOW DID I MISSPELL ANGEL?!?!?!?!?!?!

Wish I had them to lend, but I don't have the HPR gauge. Good luck in the search.

Everyone does, angel, angle its all good.

If i had em i'd loan em to ya, sadly Alex here has my gauges for regular angels, apparently though, you can use 1 of the old ones on the A1, so i wouldn't jump the gun and buy em yet, because a DIY retro angel gauge might work.

Lemme look into it

EDIT* it looks to be the A1 Ram one is the same one as the ram one for older angels, the LPR doesn't. But i mean, ya can always set the LPR by shim (Ask Dr. Strangelove), and just get a ram one (old or new).

But wait for Dr. Strangelove to confirm this

The LPR gauge threads are the same, but not the HPR gauge, and you need both to properly set up the pressures.

Could always buy a set then flip it here or ebay. Probably could sell the gauges for $25ish shipped each (they go for $30 new I think).

I might be interested in the hpr gauge if I can use it (on my G7). The adapter between the gauge and the body is different, but can't it be unscrewed and put into the LPR adapter and used in the G7 exhaust port?

The HPR gauge for the A1 series can only be used on the A1 series. The LPR gauge is interchangeable - you can use an A1 LPR gauge on any of the older Angels, and you can use the old-style LPR gauge tool on the A1 series.

Isn't the gauge something like 1/8npt into the adapter to fit in the LPR port? So if you had the 0-120psi gauge (gauge set at home forget the exact psi range) and the 0-300 gauge you could just use that one port adapter and swap between the two gauges to get both the high and low sides on pre-a1? Or if one had 2 LPR gauges and a HPR gauge you could cannibalize one of the LPR together with the HPR and make a gauge that worked in pre A1's?

Ahh, sorry, I didn't realize what you were asking. I thought you were asking if the A1 gauge adapter would work on the G7.

Yes, the actual gauges on the all of the Angel gauge tools are 1/8" NPT. Any 1/8" NPT gauge will work. You could swap the 300 psi gauge from the A1 LPR tool onto the LPR tool and use it to check the valve side pressure on the pre-A1 guns. Or you can just purchase a 1/8" gauge with the appropriate pressure range.
