i have a birthday coming up next week, thought i would treat myself to a wireless tyre monitor from Derek (ABR). went on line to order it tonight. HE'S GONE ON BLOODY HOLIDAYS till the 23rd of April, bloody spuuuuuan i am. took me two weeks to decide to get it, im a tight ass when spending on myself, it could be a sign from above. ( do i really need it) now i don't know if i should buy it now. think I'm getting a head ache.
cheers.

Kev,
My wife (+ her twin sister) and I all share the same birthday - just happens to be on Thursday 10th :-))
And happy birthdays to the rest of you next week!

My wife has to get a more serious present - her whipper snipper is stuffed, so she'll get another one...

Hadn't thought of that possibility John. Perhaps I could upgrade her lawn mower instead :-))

Sympathise there, S&N ...

One of mine once got me a Singer Sewing machine for my birthday .......

but I think that was in retaliation for me getting her a Leupold Telescopic Sight for a rifle ?

I am lucky though .... I now don't have any of them ... (the three !! )

Yes sweetheart, but you neglected to mention that I have also bought you numerous other important, useful pressies....like the garden spade, the garden fork (not just any ol' fork either..... a proper 4 prong-er), not to mention the plastic watering can and (as you know) I have a new pillow on the way for Mother's Day (and you're not even MY mother!!!! hahahaha).

Jeez I'm a thoughtful sorta bloke,,,,, I reckon I might be one of those "snag" types................ (Cripes; that's scary!!!!!!)

Cheers

Shane, I bought one of those from Derek. It works fine.

However the pressure at which you should get a warning beep cannot be preset. It is a percentage of the normal setting.

I would have preferred to be able to set the low pressure warning setting myself. Otherwise it's OK but I'll still be putting mine on Ebay.

If you think that setting thingy is not an issue and want to make me an offer let me know.

cheers

I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy
