Hi everyone! First time poster here. I am currently looking to purchase a new tire pressure gauge. I have done some online research, but most reviews are for digital gauges. I want a high quality mechanical gauge. Please name your favorite brands and models.

Accugage

With any mechanical gauge, NEVER drop it or abuse it as this typically renders it inaccurate immediately.

Milton has proven to be an awesome mechanical gauge. Built well

The digital gauges are mechanical, they just have a non-mechanical readout.

I still use a pencil; very easy to drop a dial and knock it off cal.

What will you use this for?

Id like to have a 0-50 psig for my boiler xtrol and water tank.

You just jogged me to check my xtrol pressure. Must be ould LoneRanger jogged me the other day too and I still haven't checked it - and the boiler was cold Monday since we had a 24 hour power outage!
