    HVACRT Fieldpiece SMAN360 tire pressure gauge

    Yep that's right heating ventilation air conditioning refrigeration and tires.

    Pretty good pics for a rotary phone

    I used my nitro tank a couple times to inflate a low tire on my service truck and my wife's minivan.

    I think I just forced it in by backing out the core slightly and exerting 200 psi thru ¼" cu tubing.
    Yours is far more refined!

    Ive always used a refrigerant hose to charge tires.

    Maybe it’s because i keep my gaskets fresh.

    I just align it up and push it tight to the valve stem and fillerup.

    No leaking

    The adapter R600 made to screw onto his refrigeration hose is handy and very easy to make.

    You can get pretty much any air chuck, along with a 1/4" MPT x male flare adapter.

    Here's an example (I actually just made one using these 2 parts about a month ago).......

    I actually didnt make anything it is straight from uniweld.
    I was just geeking out on setting the tire pressure to the nearest 1/10th. It works well. I have always used the hose with core depressor backed out but i cant do fine adjustments and i cant check the pressures nearly as well.
    This was bouncing around in the bosses van never being used and well now it isnt. :-)

    I know it is pretty good for a rotary phone.
    You know what though it does a real nice autorotation on the way down when i drop it.
    Oh and that was on my wifes van. :-)

    A gasket a day keeps the leaks at bay. Or something like that isnt it? :-)

    reminds me, I need to let all the air out of the car tires and inflate with nitrogen. always irritating when seasons change, and you start getting low pressure warnings.

    Ive done this. They still go low. Just not as bad

    Convert temp to *Kelvin
    P2 = p1 * (t2/t1)
