I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this at my gym…
New Easy-to-Operate Tire Pump
A BRITISH inventor, who likes his rowing exercises, produced this tire .pump which enables the maximum amount of air to be forced into an automobile tire with the minimum amount of effort. The seat slides forward and backward on runners just as the seat on a racing boat does, enabling the operator to get a long, strong pull on the pump handle. As the work is distributed over the leg and back muscles, as well as those of the arms, the pump is pleasant and not fatiguing to use. The invention is appropriately called a Situflator.
