Default Fuel injector flow tester

Has anyone bough a more budget fuel injector flow tester/cleanerlike the Launch x-sonic? Was thinking about buying one and cleaning and flowing injectors for a little side gig. Any opinions or ideas appreciated

I have thought about doing this too. I want to decap some Truck injectors to flow test.

Why not simply make a fuel injector cleaner? Lots of You Tube videos and they are very safe using pressurized Brake Kleen fluid and 12 volts (or less) to actuate the injector. This is very easy to make.

clenaing is only part of the battle. You want to test and flow them to verify the flow the same otherwise you will have problems. Especially with decapped injectors etc. looks like I could build a dynamic and static flow tester for like $50.
