    Tire Gauge

    I have the opportunity to build a group of these tire gauges, and I am trying to get an idea of how many people would be interested in them. They work on all tires up to 1" in diameter and down to HO tires. No more fumbling with your calipers check the size of your tires, now get an accurate diameter to within .0001" for exact matching of tires.

    I am looking for them to be done around August or September, depending on the deliver of materials. The price point will be around $125.95, plus shipping costs. Normal track discount will be available to brick and mortar hobby shops for those that would like to stock them.

    Interesting concept!

    How much change in diameter would you expect from differing Shore Hardnesses of the rubber?

    It seems to me the pressure from the dial indicator will compress softer rubber more, and read slightly smaller diameters.

    This has been alleviated with putting a 1" x 1" alum plate on the bottom of the indicator along with modifications within the indicator.
