I even tried making my own check valve, but still couldn't 
get it to work well.  Any suggestions.  I also attempted the use of a four ton 
hydraulic bottle jack.  The jack has distinct possibilities.  If one could 
find one whose top nut is NPT then it would be a real breeze, and make a very 
nice testor.  The jack I took apart was not NPT.  Shucks.  I'll keep everyone 
posted on progress.

Andrew :     Take a look around your shop  ---it is loaded with good little spring
and ball   ---- checks.     Every grease nibble has one inside,.

I never had that problem.  My problem was if you see 10 000 psi on the
gauge ( I did )    how to release it safely.---------- first time I just very carefully filed a notch in steel line. ------- it still hit the ceiling .

WARNING :   use glasses when you fool around.   and not just for the Cider.
