    how do u know the 3rd one was right?
    U could have 10 of them and get 2or3 the same,so which one is correct.
    Most of us cant go out and buy 3 gauges just to see.
    how do we know ,does somebody make a check gauge?

    Haha, I heard an expression once, "man with one watch always knows what time it is, man with two watches is never sure."

    I think it turned out to be something like gauge #1 said 165psi, gauge #2 said 143psi and gauge #3 said 138psi. I took it that gauge #1 was most off, and don't use that one anymore.

    I wouldn't advocate buying a bunch, unless you hold onto sales receipts and there is a fair return policy. Also, these usually say "accurate to within +-5psi" or something.

    Or you could just ask some people to bring their gauges to the next GTG and have a comparison to see if there are any outliers.

    But the end point here is that this saw has better compression than your brother's saw, and about equal compression as another 50cc saw that is often described as "high compression", and squish is set at a modest 0.024

    Come on guys.......quit busting his balls. He is just trying to sell his saw. If his gauge is off, its not off as much as you guys think. Here is my bone stock Dolmar pushing 180 psi.

    You can do video if you use your phone, can't remember exactly but it is an option.
    Beyond that, the flack you're getting is bull. There is a thread somewhere that Treemonkey talks about the trapped compression, you can have high psi and still have safe trapped compression ratio. I think it was 2153 deluxe thread. Please think before you bash someone, he's in a rough patch and has to sell his saw, something each of us would not enjoy.

    I have Dolkita 2164 that reads 180 on my gauge and I suspect my gauge reads a little lite.

    might want to take your guage and someone else that will let you borrow there and see if they are the same. i think it is off 15 - 20 psi but i could be wrong

    That is a nice saw Mark. I have tried three different guages. I don't can't say any of them are consistent. When a man pulls the rope he knows its good or not. Ignore these guys.

    If I had the extra money I'd buy this to stop the yapping. I like those little saws.

    I just read this thread, wish I had the money too. Looks like a good deal. Btw I feel for you, I lost my job a little over a year ago after twenty-five years. It will work out.

    If not maybe someone at the GTG will need a good saw or have something to trade.
