There is a very faint etching on one edge that says
The Part number is 3680582 as I read it - The first , second and forth digits are smudged so those numbers may be 1,0, and 8 respectively
That means the first 4 digits could be 3680, or 1680, or 3688, 1688 , 3080,1080, 3088, 3688 , but the last three are firm as 582.
Super premium precision , for a very low cost.

Come on, give it up. How much and from where? A quick google of that PN and cummins comes up with a couple vendors overseas and no prices.

Doesn't matter as long as it's not a mile off. Some nicer cylinder squares that are meant to MEASURE (not just act as a reference) are tilted purposefully so you can rotate them till it rests evenly on the side of your part then it tells you the error.

Then I know my indicator is set to dead zero as long as the cylinder is parallel.
