I have a friend who inspects and tests the gauges for folks who bring canners in. We've seen some of these old beauties, usually owned by someone who got it from their grandmother. A couple had wooden handles. The gauges have either been broken or didn't test within range to be accurate. One was too warped to use. I would personally keep it as a conversation piece. ;-)
