Left-handed finklestoddens, genuine Merklewitz from the looks of them. They're used for sub-nubbing tremmie-pipes to wenial-sprockets, as seen on the previous generation of Nofer(tm) trunnions.

They are from a set of caliper/divider/compass etc. that has interchangeable tips IE: points for a compass and different size and shape parts as the ones shown for use as inside and outside calipers or hermaphrodite caliper etc. Starret sells these but I don't know if that is the brand of ones you have. Without the rest of the set they will make a good back scratcher.

They look like poured Babbitt bearing scrapers. Primarily, they are used to scrape off high spots on bearing surfaces....I think.

They are the caliper legs for a Starrett No. 59 Trammel set.

I still think they're for sub-nubbing tremmie pipes.

Ever tried to do it without a pair?

Yes they are, I was thinking they where from the NO. 85 Caliper set which has almost but not quite the same legs, possibly interchangeable.

The No. 85 calipers use similar, but not interchangeable caliper legs.

Strangely enough, I have a Starrett trammel I bought years ago at a surplus place. I never knew there were additional accessories. If you don't want these "caliper" units, I could use them (maybe). Anyway, They should match up with my trammel.

If you want to give them a good home. e-mail me at rufus.carswell@yahoo.com

No doubt you DO need a pair. Those lacking a pair best not attempt the task.

You got that half right. But the Starrett photo shows a right and a left hand one. Leon clearly has two left hand ones. So, there not a pair, just two half pairs.

Not only did he get the caliper legs, he also got the trammel heads so he has a set. The wood or metal beam is provided by the user.

He also got a double set (two each size) of adjustable parallels. These are something you do not appreciate until you have them. Overall a good haul.
