Ever see an unstable needle on the working pressure gauge?

Has anyone ever noticed the working pressure needle pulsating every second or so? What does this mean?

I've never seen it happen before, the reg I noticed this on is one of those cheap Aquateks from ebay that are basically a JBJ design, I think, made to look kind of like a single stage Victor Medalist, the working pressure is permanently preset somewhere around 30, mine is jumping between 30 and 34-ish.

So far this cheap little reg has done me fine, hope this isn't a sign of a problem.

funny you should mention it. i noticed that yesterday on my milwuakee regulator...don't know what it means but as long as the bubbles keep on coming i'm not all that concerned:D.
How much [email protected] is in the tank. As tanks get closer to running out they seem to become less reliable as far as regulating 100% efficiently.
