    Kingsbridge gauge fix?

    I have an older Kingsbridge schrader tire pressure gauge that refuses to work - hadn't used it for a long time. (This gauge must be older than I think - Googling it finds no info.) Any common issues or easy fixes with these gauges?

    I stopped making those gauges 20 years ago or more. I can probably repair it so, send it to at

    No promises, but I'll fix it for free if I can. If I can't, all you'll be out is the postage.

    FBinNY,

    I didn't realize that you had made these! I have one (presta) that I think works other than the rubber insert for the valve stem is cracked and needs to be replaced. Not sure how available tubing in this size is?

    BTW, satisfied chain'l customer

    Over the years, I used a few different rubber bushings, so the best bet is for you to email me yours (a picture), send me the complete gauge, and one of the bushing shot next to a ruler so I can match it correctly.

    Of course you could also mail me the actual bushing, but that would cost 45 cents.

    I didn't have your email address (thought I did?), so am posting linked pics here. I can take more measurements, etc. if need be.
