Homemade Manometer?

So, I'm quickly learning how much cheaper it is to learn how to do your own maintenance. I bought a $25 tach and adjusted the pilot screws, bike sounds and runs much better. Now, I'm looking at synching the carburetors and I'm seeing pretty good manometers for about $80 and I'm also seeing a lot of homemade ones.

Anyone out there have any luck with these homemade ones?

And is there anyone out there who's willing to let me borrow one for less than a day?

I made one of these a couple years ago for my twin cylinder bikes. Works great!

You'd be welcome to borrow mine, I think it's hanging in the attic.

I cant use a manometer. They always go off scale around me. Stud finders do the same. Useless in my hands

I have one hanging in my garage right now. Works like a champ.

You'll also probably need these.

I already bought the adapters. Just need to sync the carbs now. I would like to borrow one. I live on the SE side, near Almeda mall.
