Does anyone know how to specify custom tick values on gauges?

I would like to have an output gauge that has a range of -16 to 16 in steps

of 4.  The following, however, insists on using spacings of 5.

VerticalGauge[fval, {-16, 16},

ScaleDivisions -> {8, 1}]

This seems to be another unnecessary design restriction imposed by WRI.

There is a Ticks option but it does not work.

Dear David,

I asked recently a very close question at the StackExchange:

http://mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/28348/how-to-fix-ticks-in-gauges

As much as you can see from the answers to my question, there is no satisfactory solution. In any non-standard case one has to build a considerable part of the gauge himself. This we can do, however, also without the WRI gauge template.

Best, Alexei
