Interested in Pumping

Hey all,

Been trying to read up on Pumping as of late. Read the pumping 101, etc.

I know that I would need a Cylinder, pump, and a gauge,

Knowing these, I was wondering if there were any already made threads about the Best/Good products that can be bought on these (I tried doing the search button, but it didn’t really show me any defined thread).

I read about the home-made pumps/cylinder(via Tank gravers etc), but what are you guys (experts) real opinion about home made vs industrial made cylinders/pumps.

So the questions are: Providing many Items brand/homemade and What is the BEST/Recommendation in contrast to quality and cost and Effectiveness.

Hope that makes sense.
