OP, you are a lifesaver. These things are all over the place here in Japan, but I could never track one down back in the states. I will be getting one as soon as I return.

FWIW, the psiclops looks a lot like a whatchamajigger I rigged up for expanding my compressor's tank. I have a wimpy little compressor and a big portable expansion tank like this:


You're expected to just air up the tank (maybe at the gas station using their pump) then take it and go somewhere. I concocted a splitter using various fittings to make it automatically balance with my compressor's built-in tank and still have a connector for whatever accessory/hose I want to attach to use the air. I'll have to post pictures.

I have a cheap digital gauge from a department store. Not sure how accurate it is, but tire to tire I imagine its really really close.

You guys might want to check out accuracy vs precision.

Just a thought.

So what I meant was that my digital gauge was precise, but accuracy was really not known.

+1

Can you tell I like quick-connect couplers?
In truth, I rarely leave the tank hooked up. I connect them together, open the valves so they equalize (which generally kicks on the compressor pump, bringing them up to around 115 psi), disconnect and use the 5 gal tank to fill tires or sometimes to take off lug nuts with an impact gun. The coupler on the T union only sees action if I'm using some kind of high-demand air tool, though even then I've been known to get more creative:

That's my crank pulley bolt remover, BTW.
