Kellogg made one of the best and nicest looking tire pumps for Brass Era cars.

Very pretty, but a strong arm is needed by the chauffeur to pump up that big clincher tire :-)

Better yet to have the latest in motoring aids, just featured for 1909...the Prest-O-Lite Co. new pressure cylinder, just keep this handy for repairing that road side flat, no pumping needed!

How do the three tubes work? Do they all work in parallel or in series?

"No Strong Language!" The Prest-O-Lite reminds me of Fix aFlat. I wonder what the beneficial to rubber gas is?
I also wonder if the Kellogg pump is made by the Kellogg telephone Co. , was Kellogg a common name?

I have some where in my T stuff a hose to inflate tires with that uses engine compression to inflate tires. Remove a spark plug and screw one end into the plug hole and attach the other end to the tire, start engine and pump up tire!

Howard,

Each cylinder is in series. The large one supplies the middle one which supplies the small one. The compression is more efficient that way, just like a compound steam engine. It should take less effort to pump up a tire, especially to high pressure.

The modern hand pumps for bicycle tires are light weight and easy to pump. They are designed to pump over 120 psi for the skinny tires on road bikes. I carry one in my car and use it to pump the tires after the car sits for a while.

Another option is the CO2 cartridges that are carried by bicycle riders.

Neil
