An off-the-wall idea/question from a newbie

So the last time I went out and was airing up I was thinking that it's a pain to run the compressor for a bit, remove it, check the PSI, put it back on, etc etc etc.

It got me to thinking, what if I had 2 valve stems, one to fill and the other to check the PSI? Does anybody think that this is a good or bad idea?

To me it would save time with the entire filling process. What say you?

Or you could build yourself one of these: 4 Tire Inflator
I'm planning to make a hardware store one of these days and put one together.

Don't the sell attachments that both fill while the handle is being pressed, and gauge psi while it's not? Like pumps at gas stations?


That sort of thing

I work for an irrigation supply company and build a device to do that forb our sales andbservice guys to use on our systems (and their tires.You can build one cheaply and easily that isn't nearly as large and cumbersome as that one from advance, and easier to carry in the Jeep.

Parts list
2.5" gauge (liquid filled preferred)
1/4" brass tee
1/4" Schrader to pipe thread adapter
Locking tire chuck
Hose (we use a poly ethylene tube with adapters but you could use a short piece of air hose with barb/thread adapters)

Assembly should be pretty straight forward onc e you have the parts and pieces, but if you need pics or further instruction message me.

The hose length is up to you whether you want for stand or squat beside the tire.
