You've mentioned changing the meters if they don't suit, so thought to throw in what I like. Ilike the 0-60 range meters as they have better resolution in the are we use most often for the low pressure we use. That kind of flies in the face of "normal" for what the regs will often come with and it does add a touch of danger to using them but not much. Depends more on the user than the actual meter.
The theory is that the higher the reg max pressure, the higher the output meter will read and that might/could/may make it a bit of hazard if one is prone to messing up! Idea is that, even though we can set a 0-60 to a more exact point like 18 PSI, where we would have to guess on a 0-200 PSI meter, the odds of a bit of high pressure getting through the reg to hit the low meter is more hazard to a meter that maxs out at 60 versus 200.
But that is where the user comes in as I am careful to turn the output pressure down to cut off the flow to the low meter EVERY time before I open the tank valve. But there is the theory that one could bend /break a low meter if it is too low, even on a dual stage reg. Not sure how many times it happens but theory says it might?
Being a good welder, you've probably got quite a lot of "careful" built in the genes!
