When I was in Advanced Auto Parts today, I came across an air tool accessory in the air tool fitting section that I completely forgot they made. We had one in the equipment repair shop where I used to work, but I had forgotten all about them until seeing this jogged my memory. A tire filler with a built-in PSI gauge so you don't have to remove the nozzle from the valve, check your PSI with a separate tire gauge, then, either let some air out or put some air in until finally getting it right. This tells you your psi immediately without removing the nozzle from the valve. At 62, the less time it takes me to do this back bending chore the better I like it. Jim Patrick

Neat! How high does the gage go, would it work on 60 psi clincher tires?

They are indeed good Jim, but check the accuracy with a GOOD quality gauge. I have one almost similar to the picture you posted that I bought new from Snap On 20 years ago and it is 4 PSI short of what two other high quality race car gauges I have read. However, knowing that, I just adjust and add 4 PSI more when filling from the combo unit.

Mark, most of those do go that high, but again double check the accuracy.

What Chad M. said ---I also find the type of tool Jim describes lacks accuracy.

I have two of those but like others have said, I don't trust the gauge.

It is very well constructed. On Saturday, I filled my tires the cumbersome way using a separate tire gauge and got them to precisely 32 PSI. Today, when I put the nozzle of this tool up to the valve of each tire, it read 32 PSI on the button. Yes Mark it goes up to 60 PSI. I trust it, especially since it feels so good on my back. LOL!
