    Cheap tire deflators

    Found these at O'reilly auto parts. The sell for $1.36 at my local store. One end of is a valve core removal tool. The other end is a screw on deflator. It had a solid pice that depresses the valve core and a small hole to let the air escape. I bought one to try it. It worked well to deflate the tire on those frigid days to keep your hands away from cold blowing air.
    Since then I bought 3 more. It takes a little over a minute to deflate 1 tire from 28psi down to 12psi. I am thinking about drilling the hole out to let air move out quicker. But for about $6 they did well for me.

    I tried a few different style deflators and just pull the valve core now. 26ish to 4ish psi goes pretty quickly, if I count out "open time" in seconds on the first one, i can get pretty close on the rest.

    That's nice, until the valve core winds up somewhere other than your hand.... Ask me how i know.

    I know of a cheaper way to get them. Have someone buy the 4 you'd like, drop them in an envelope and mail them for $3-4. You'd save $11 on shipping alone.

    Hasn't happened yet, but I do carry extras. The only other thing I may do is install tank drains, they're cheap, fast, can monitor pressure as it falls and require no tools.
