I remember it clearly, though it happened 20 years ago: I took my brand new 3/8” air ratchet to a valve cover bolt — and snapped the bolt cleanly in half. That same day, after I was done with the ole extractor set, I picked up my first pressure regulator, one that you could turn the valve a quarter turn to regulate pressure, but it wasn’t very exact or reproducible if I needed to repeat a settings. We’ve come a long way from that to Eastwood’s Digital Pressure Regulator.
This pressure regulator takes up about the same space as a regular unit, and it allows you to adjust the pressure from 0 to 160 PSI, accurate to 1.0 PSI. It also contains an inertia-monitoring device that’ll shut off the display when it’s not in use.
The Eastwood Digital Pressure Regulator sells for $40.
