Shouldn't all time pieces be displayed reading 10 minutes to 2 so that they look that they are smiling?  :lolb: :lolb: :lolb: :lolb:

My more serious thoughts on this is that if the gauge were left "unmolested" then it most certainly be dispatched to the bottom draw for eternity eventually to be thrown out as junk. Stew has brought it back to life as a working piece where I am sure it hangs proudly in his workshop to be looked at several times (sorry about the pun) a day.  :ThumbsUp: :ThumbsUp: :cheers:

I agree, these old gages are great, I restored one that we use anually at our festival on the air tank that starts the big diesel engine, but they aren't an endagered species yet.

Interesting, my old speedometer out of my land rover is knocking around so may make a clock out of that. Thanks for the idea
