Nice one Crispy, a bit of reliability for you now hopefully  :028:


I've got a similar one to that gauge, albeit a digital one:

Very tempting but I'm stuck on the sentimental value of my vintage Dunlop No6 pressure gauge. Appears to be calibrated from 6 -50lbs psi and is probably one step up from a kick of the tyre ping test. But it is what is a 15th birthday present of half a century ago when TT100's were the must have tyre.

I've got one of those Dunlop gauges somewhere. It's in a tin torpedo tube, like a fancy cigar.

I don't think I'd rely on it for any great degree of accuracy, more like a precautionary reading or rough idea.
(When I couldn't be bothered to get out my £460 Longacre for example  :008:)

In a tin torpedo tube like a fancy cigar, you've been spoilt with the deluxe model ;-) Mine lives in the spare pocket of the little pouch that the tread depth gauge came in, seems to be made for it. Kept handy if I need a  second opinion on the kick of the tyre ping test. Definitely not of a calibrated standard but seems to agree ±1 psi with the pressure gauges on on the mini compressors supplied in lieu of a spare wheel by Vauxhall and Ford.
