Where are you guys getting 0-3 lb. gauges?
I can't find any source for them. 0-5 is all I come up with.

    If you Google "3 PSI Gauge" and clip on shopping I see a few places to buy them.

    Personally, I feel a 3 PSI gauge is too high for heating as I found anything above 1/4 PSI became annoying. I do not see a reason for any residential heating system to run above 1/2 PSI as of yet.

    For a smaller, cheaper gauge I really like this one :
    Dwyer LPG4-D9122N

    You can buy it right from them, or from an online supplier.

    That maxes out at 9 1/4 ounces or just above 1/2 pound.
