Simple PSI gauge idea

Unread postAuthor: Coodude26 » Wed Jun 18, 2008 9:48 pm

Could I possibly get a threaded car tire pressure gauge? I had an idea to add an extra Schrader to my pneumatic and somehow attach it so it won't come off. Would I have to use some glue?
I don't want to spend a lot on a PSI gauge.

PS: Is there a difference between "gauge" and "gage" and if not which is the correct spelling?

Thanks.

You could do that Those things arent always accurate though. A gauge (correct spelling) is not really that much more for me your idea whould cost more than getting a proper gauge.

You know, there is a lot simpler solution.

Go to your local Menards and buy a 0-200 psi gauge for $5.00
quite cheap really :roll:

and as of the "gauge" vs "gage",
gauge usually refers to an instrument used to measure magnitude or position; gages may be used to measure the elevation of water surface, the velocity of flowing water ...

where as the excuse for the spelling of gage =
"Gauge" used in Great Britain but finds some use in the US It is chiefly found for nonlinear measurement instruments (fluid gages, etc.). ...

So to answer your question, they mean the same exact thing. :wink:
Thank god for google! lol

well, what do you expect for the most popular search engine that indexes the greatest number of web pages. Google not only provide search engine results, but translation, news groups, news search, image search, paid ads, g mail etc.

(lol, I "googled" the definition of "google")

ok, back on topic guys.
