Slick valve modification for tire inflator

I made this modification to the valve on my tire inflator.
People have been putting in a TEE to connect the valve, but this was too bulky.
By drilling a hole in both sides of the valve to exhaust the air, the Tee is not needed.

Below is the original design (posted by another member), and then a closeup of the modified valve.
I don't have a picture of the final assembly, but the valve will be in line with the hose.
The valve now has three positions. On, exhaust, off. Exhaust is at the 45 degree position.

Now when my supply air is under my tire pressure, I can exhaust enough air to make the motorhome compressor kick in and build to 120 psi. I also need this for my home compressor.

Or just buy one of these Milton's and be done:

Milton Window Inflator Gauge, Dual Head, Model# S-506 | Dry Gauges| Northern Tool + Equipment

When you don't have them on a schrader valve, they will free flow air when the valve is depressed. BTW, they are still made in the US.

If it only had a better gauge. I prefer a dial.
But maybe I could just buy the angled head....that would be the best.
