    Came across this last night in a bedroom dresser drawer, of all places. It comes in its original leather case. I thought it was a shotgun shell at first. I read that they were sold as advertising by the Wyeth Hardware Stores. It is stamped:

    SCHRADERS UNIVERSAL TIRE GAUGE
    Manufactured By A. Schrader & Son Inc.
    Brooklyn N.Y. U.S.A. --- Pat. July 6, 1909 --- March 28,1916

    The third photo is one I got off the internet showing it extended. I do plan to test it out at home, when I get a chance.

      My work sends its employees odd gifts every holiday. I got a modern version a few months ago. LOL.

      Ah, SpiritBear, gotta love the ole tire gauge, umbrella or even calculator/ruler corporate gifts...Life just doesn't get any better than that...Haha

      I have a couple of these but no leather case, give it a quick shake and it should open.

      Thanks EJW-54, it did open and the markings are in even better shape than the picture I scabbed from the internet. They are cleanly marked in white. Thank you for all the "Loves", not being a tool person, I thought this was pretty fun, anyways.
