Default "torque wrench" pump/compressor

Just out of curiosity, is there a "torque
wrench" pump or compressor? I.e., you would
screw on the presta valve, set the gizmo to
e.g. 35psi, engage it, and instead of watching
the indicator, automagically at the right level
it would stop?

Most of the gas stations here use an air station that you can set for
your desired pressure and then just plug the hose onto the tire valve
- there is a little clamp to hold it there. When the tire is inflated
to the specified pressure the inflation stops and a bell rings.

Since they aren't manufactured here I had assumed that the rest of the
world had them too.

WTF? Did I miss your joke?

You don't have to be condescending. Instead be
happy you have so advanced technology at your
business! OK, so it is called an air regulator.

Don't forget to answer my still-unanswered
question on "65 PSI". Unless of course you only
want to answer my "joke" questions?

My experience from 50+ years ago says not to rely on those things, although I suppose they may be different now.

Back then I blew a tire off the rim with one. I suspect the problem was the volume of each pumping stroke. In a large sized car tire, the volume surge with each big stroke would be absorbed and barely raise the pressure. In a low volume bike tire, it caused an explosion. That's my guess anyway.

I usually inflate using a manual floor pump with a gage. It's easy enough to stop pumping when the dial reads the desired temperature.

You need to understand that a lot of your "questions" sound suspiciously like trolling. Why not get a GOOD book on bicycle repair and learn the proper basic terminology and repair methods? Plus, with a good book you'd have the information at hand and not have to wait for replies from here.

BTW, as Frank stated, using a HIGH volume gas station air hose to fill a road-bicycle tire that has a comparatively very low volume will almost guarantee you'll blow your bicycle tire unless you're very quick at attaching and disengaging the hose.

Cheers

Don't you mean, when the dial reads the desired foot-pounds?

I don't "need" or "have" to do anything. I do
exactly what I want. Like now for example, what
I want to do is add you to my KILL file.
But don't worry, there are tons of negativistic
lamers there already to keep you company.

Or lumens, if you want a multiple thread tie.

That you're trolling is confirmed!
