    Really is nice. Here in the states, some of the smaller diameter home extinguishers do come without gauges. Companies won't refill those. The finish of your cylinder is particularly realistic looking.

    Man, that turned out mighty damn well.

    As long as you're having fun, nothing else matters.

    Agreed, I have 2 fire extinguishers I removed from an old camper I scrapped. No guage, but they are still sealed. I have no clue if they would work in the event of a fire and " testing " them would defeat the purpose. Wish they had a guage.

    Once again, this is a GREAT prop!

    Really nice work. I have a 1/6th'ish fire extinguisher which - ironically - is actually a cigarette lighter!

    Very cool. Do you have any progress pics? Would be nice to see how this took shape.

    With or without a gauge, it looks pretty darned good to me!

    Thanks again, i,m stoked you guys like it. I didnt take any pics but this may help, also i got the idea of using a Alligator clip from a member on OSW many years ago he posted a tutorial not sure if its still there but maybe worth the effort to look, his name escapes me it was a long time ago. Hope this helps.Fire Extinguisher-2017-02-15-15-56-52-jpg
