I found this tire inflator with pressure gauge, which dessperetly needed a restoration. It was broken. Air was leaking everywhere, the handle wasn't working properly anymore and the pressure gauge didn't work either. This was definitely the most challenging restoration i did so far. I hope you like the result and the video.
