You see lots of these at swap meets and garage sales but you hardly ever see them in the original box.

I have not seen an original box for this tester. I have several testers, but no boxes. I do have several original boxes for the temp. gauge. Nice find.

"You see lots of these at swap meets and garage sales". Jay, I wish I lived closer to you so I could see some of the stuff you find. I've been going to swap meets and garage sales for over twenty years, and I have never seen about 99% of what you have posted!!! Keep 'em coming! Dave

I had a U.S. Gauge unit like this in my first car which had belonged to a Great-Uncle. Used it for years with no problems. Then one day, I pulled it out of the leather pouch to use it and it had green "stuff" growing all over the inside of the gauge area. Evidently, something corrosive had been put in one of my tires and gotten inside the gauge during a pressure check. Wish I still had that gauge.

I've got a US Gauge tester too. I don't use it. It's in nice shape but not new in the box like like this one. That box is in remarkable shape. Thanks Jay.

Somewhere (I swear, NEVER move, ya can't find anything for years afterwards!)I have my Dad's "Moto-compresso-Meter" compression gauge. Still in its wooden box, although the lid is long gone. Anyone else have one of these?
