The cheapest brand new thermocuple vacuum gauge would probably be Duniway stockroom's TCG-06M at $193.00. It has a mildly expanded low end that the ten buck cheaper TCG-531 does not.

TC gauges are all played out at 1 micron and are not accurate to better than 20% in that region, if you are lucky.

Used gauges with tubes are often found at hamfests for $25.00 or on E-bay.
