[QUOTE=kantuckid;842720]No kidding.:D My point was that the increments were in single digits, not that I was intrigued with the fact that tires warm up or that their psi increases as that occurs.:brow
I'll ad that I don't agree that "friction" is "a design feature", I'm(we all are) betting our collective lives on it being there when we need it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:bow
I mis understood your question:scratch
Why are we all relying on"friction" to save our collective lives. ???

I do not think we have a choice. Do you have an alternative?

Sorry,my point was more, what has friction got to do with saving our lives?
I dont get what the poster was on about?
Pencil type pressure gauges rely on friction and relative air pressure to overcome the friction.
[QUOTE=SteveAikens;845238]The attached is what I recieved in my order for 4 Christmas gifts. They've changed the head and added too much brass fitting to allow it to be used on the rear wheel of either of my BMWs.
I've emailed them to see what can be done about this problem.[/QUOTE]I've received the following reply from the maker of the EZ Gauge:
We changed the chuck design to accommodate a better chuck and seal. A majority of these units go towards automobile use. Regardless, I know firsthand how frustrating it is to check tire pressure on a motorcycle tire. I've seen clearances of no more than 3/4 of an inch with some of the disc brakes.
Regardless, this chuck change took place earlier this year. If you'd like the old chuck, which, judging by your email you would prefer, I'd be happy to send the old style chucks out to you with a new hose. Just send along your name and address, and confirm that you require three hoses and chucks, and I'll take care of it, to make sure these units work for you.
Thanks in advance, and have a great new year.

Pretty good service.
After years (I don't know how many) of using a digital Gorilla brand gauge, this weekend, it decided that all the tires in the world have 0.0 lbs of pressure.
I still use the old style pencil gauge and am very happy with it. From what I understand, it is more important to use the same gauge each time than to worry if the gauge is analog or digital.
