Sorry Barb the old gauge stays on the canner.
I compared it to the new one with the weight and it does the same thing.
Both go off at 11 PSI with the weight on 10 PSI and rock steady at 15 psi or just a wee bit under like 14 1.2 pounds.
This is the same readings I got from my test gauge when testing the old gauge.
