1932 temperature gauge restored

Recommended Posts

I sent my 1932 President temperature gauge off to be restored.  It's for my Indy car replica.  I had already created new artwork and a decal for the face, applied the decal and overcoated it with clear Krylon.  The gauge was missing the entire capillary tube and the bulb, and the adapter well for the head was badly corroded.  It came back with a new bulb and nut, armored capillary tube, and a new brass well nut.  Nice job! 

 

The work was done by "The Temperature Gauge Guy", Roy Martin.  Turn-around time was about three weeks.  He is in South Burlington, VT.  His phone is: ate oh too - ate sicks too - sicks tree seben fore.   Basic assembly, refill, and calibration is $85, other parts extra but fairly priced.  Roy says he has lots of gauges for sale, though not another 1932 President gauge.  He also has a 1925 Studebaker Duplex Phaeton EQ car that he will be selling soon.
