Under Pressure

You just never know where a great ad character will turn up. I was talking with a fellow collector at his both this past weekend and spotted the giant air pressure tester. Picking it up and looking at the dial was this great graphic of the Hastings ad man. So now I have a giant air pressure tester which will never make into my tool box



Just wanted to let you all know the All American Collectors show is coming up this Saturday and Sunday in Glendale. If you are in the area be sure to drop by the show.

Nice find!

I suspected this is an auto engine compression test gauge. Since a healthy engine should have over 100PSI compression, the range was right on. And looking at the maker's markings on the face, it confirmed that. Hastings is a manufacturer of piston rings.
