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.

    I may give this a try as a lower cost alternative to our SATA regulators:

    Has anyone used this product ?

    Who needs that kind of precision for an air line? What is the real advantage over a traditional regulator? The only practical application I can think of would be guys who are spraying paint.

    Re Dave B Says;

    Precisely, that why we spend money on SATA guns to spray lacquer and other finishes on high end cabinetry. I take it that Eastwood supplies car enthusiasts who are probably just a picky.

    I’m looking at them for precise control of CO2 pressure to beer kegs. The pressure varies a bit depending on the style, and 1 PSI makes a big difference in a beer that pours perfectly or getting half a glass of foam.

    This will work for a co2 for a kegerator correct?
