Subject: <MISC> Tire gauges
I agree with Carl Buckland's choice of the Griot's tire gauge. I also
have the VDO gauge that I've had since about '75. At the time I
purchased it, I liked its feature of holding the pressure until you
pressed the button to release it, but since I purchased the Griot's
a couple of years ago, the VDO never sees the light of day. I too,
like the feature of being able to add a bit of excess air, and then
being able to bleed it off until I get where I want. I like the design
of it better than the Accugage from Imparts.
For those with an air compressor, Griot's now offers a professional
tire inflating gun for $39.95. It has the standard 1/4" N.P.T. thread
on the bottom to install a quick-release coupling or hose. It has a
3" multi-colored gauge which displays in PSI or bar. One-handed
operation. Pull the trigger slightly to bleed, or a little harder to
inflate. It also has a rubber shroud around the gauge. European-made.
If you can find any of the products Griot sells, somewhere else, you'll
probably get it for less.
