Pressure gauges that came out of the Badger Army Ammunition Plant located near Baraboo, WI, as the plant was being dismantled. The plant was built in 1942. These gauges look to be of 1942 vintage. I believe the plant was heated with steam. These gauges were likely used to monitor steam pressure. As such, the internal gauge components will not be affected by exposure to moisture. Numerous sizes, styles and pressure ranges are still available. See photos. All gauges have been tested to verify that they operate correctly. One gauge listed failed the test (see below). These gauges are of much higher quality than those found at Menard's and Fleet Farm. Government facilities have the highest quality standards governing what goes into their building construction.
