I use the one from Harbor Freight. There are many similar ones.Search on “pressure pot” on the Harbor Freight site and you’ll see what I use. I changed the fitting to do what I wanted, but other than that, there is not much to them. Just DON’T over pressure it!

I have seen a demo at my local woodworking club where a member showed us how he makes resin pen blanks. He used the 2 1/2 gsl pressure pot from harbor freight.
Here is a link to it.

It says its good to 60psi, bit at the demo, if I remember correctly, he said he only uses it to about 40psi.
