Can anyone comment on this brand?
Was hoping to find an American made one however I think I am about 40 years too late.
I purchased this one, not too happy it looks cheap and I paid $80 for it.

Every single month? That's a lot of wasted time driving there to check/fill your tires with air when you can do it in your own driveway in a few minutes.

Any 12V air compressor will do. You just need it to fill a couple PSI as needed, right? I leave one with my emergency kit (including a pencil tire pressure gauge) in the trunk of all my cars. You never know when you'll need it.

So you ignored everyone's advice and now you're not happy.

Seriously though, what is there to be happy or not happy about? It's just a gauge. I get mine for free at Firestone or any tire shop. When I get new tires I ask for a free gauge. Why do you need to pay $80 for one? Some people have way too much money (or no common sense).

If you go back to post # 10 you will see that I took my friends advice. You are right on one account though, I do have way too much money, sigh...

Did you try my suggestion?
You don't know me from Adam, but just look at all the great reviews it received beyond my recommendation.
I think I paid $16 when it was on sale, and it is still going strong. But even at $20, it was 1/4 the cost of the one you bought and is far better.

Doesn't help if you're taking advice from other people who also have too much money Might as well try the one from Sears. For $20 who cares right? You can throw 1 in each of your cars (I'm assuming you have at least 2).
