Cut the guts out of the gauge.

Marry the two together and hey presto you have a pressure gauge clock

Nice, will take some getting used to 30 past 150psi.  I do hope 300psi is clocking off time.

Hi
Built this one a few years back Using a Japanese ""Seiko" movement and scrap unloader valve from a Broomwade Compressor.
No Pressure from time with a built in unloader.

Any time after 300psi a pint of Safety Valve should be consumed.  Keep consuming till pressure reduces or two gauges are observed.

...Keep consuming till pressure reduces...

Pressure reduction valves should only be operated in the designated area. Now wash your hands :D

That will allow a few extra pints before reaching the designated area.
