What are you using for your breech and overfire draft measurements?
Do you just rely on your combustion analyzer readings or do you also use a separate stand-alone gauge for performing tests and adjustments during annual service.

I’ve used the simple Dwyer 460 for years, but have also seen the old standard Bacharach draft gauge used quite often.
Is there any advantage to Bacharach’s draft gauge over the Dwyer 460, other than not having to hold it upright in your hand while using it? I’ve noticed that it costs about three times as much as my 460.

I second that statement. I think not having to send it out every few months for recalibration is a HUGE plus. This type of equipment only makes you money when it makes it out to thte job.

I use my Testo 510 mostly.

Its already in teh tool bag. So why carry something else in(I use a bacharach Tech 60 CA).

If I was still using a wet kit, I would probably use the draft guage in the kit.
