gauge sources

Newb to this forum. I have Autometer gauges, and they are proving to be absolute junk, like made by Wham-O. My pyro will get so hot I cant touch the gauge, and the temp starts bouncing all over the place. Beating on it will usually cause it to behave correctly for a while. The Boost guage wont zero, stops are about 5 PSI boost. Plus, they fog up all the time.

SO....who has good prices on mailorder for Dipricol or Isspro? Recommended sources?

Thanks for the bump, but if you havent heard of this, then you havent heard much of Autometer. I have had several of them, have a total of 6 now between two rigs, and my opinion of Autometer is that its cheap chinese junk. All 6 of them fog up (maybe that's just Alabama WX, ya know?) and none of them have been very reliable or accurate. The Pyro is several hundred degrees off from an IR thermometer aimed at the thermocouple.

Anyway, enough ranting, I want to upgrade to something better quality, and I amasking for recommendations for sources to check for ordering!
