Dial/Pointer

The pressure scale is printed on the face of the dial. The pointer typically moves clockwise to measure pressure and counter clockwise to measure vacuum. Some gauges offer adjustable pointers for recalibration. Test gauges offer a mirrored band on the dial and a knife-edge pointer making it easy to take very accurate readings.
