TBS and manometer

i'm going to start performing my own TBSes. Need suggestions for a manometer. i'm not going to make my own. any recomended makes. if i go electronic/digital anything i need to be aware of regarding the specifications of the unit? like max pressure, type of measurment it can take, or whatever? i'm not familiar with them so i don't even know what to look for. prices range from mid $100 to almost a grand. don't know which would be too little and which would be too much.

Somtimes it sucks not being in the loop. HUH??[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="2"][COLOR="Olive"][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]

If you don't want to make one, then I'll sell you one that I made.

You only need the mullet manometer, nothing fancier.
For 1/2 hour of labor and less than $10 you can have one that won't break if you drop it, won't turn your garage into a haz waste facility, requires no batteries or other electrical source, etc.




$50, shipped.

It's cheap enough. Chuck it and make another the next time you need one.

This one works great, doesn't use any liquids, and you can rent it out to your 4cylinder buddies.

Edit: Just noticed they have a 2 column for twins.
