|Thread: Myford Super 7 Lathe Instruction Manual|
Beginning to wish that I hadn't started this thread now.
Perhaps the moderators ought to delete this thread to protect the forum from any claims that might present themselves if that is the consensus of the posters here.
This may be already to hand for Super 7 owners but I came across a download for the operating manual which may be useful to some. It is a pdf.
Apologies if this is old news.

Sounds like you might only have a single stage regulator. The outlet pressure can change as the inlet pressure falls.
A two stage regulator would avoid that problem.
