My 20 Year old Interdynamics A\C gauge set bit the dust....

Replacement options are Robinair or Yellow Jacket.

Leaning toward Yellow Jacket with 1% gauges not a 3-2-3 gauge.

Set needs to work with 410 A as well as 134.

Yes pressure is pressure but 410 works a lot higher than 134 so you can't find a gauge marked for both.

I know Harbor Freight has them cheap but I want quality that will outlast me.

Then don't get the set from Harbor Freight. I've had two of these sets of gauges and both have had the same issue: the plastic knob handles break and fall off.

I've got yellow jacket gauges with snap on connectors. I made the investment after going though 5 sets of harbor freight gauges in 5 years. I'm probably 3 years in on them and no issues other than an occasional o-ring at the fitting. I might use them once a week compared to using my recovery/fill machine every other day.

Got the Yellow Jacket set with quick stop valves and 60" hoses.

1% Gauges Rated for R-410 not the 3-2-3's

Also got a set of R-134 Adapters.

Downloaded the Danfos Refrigerant Slider to my phone as well.

Now I have to get some R-22 for the Casa...

Replacement of particular device depends upon its usage, as if it bit the dust why don't you clean it. Investing money on it is quite hard. But one can easily get it from the online platform.
