    Hi all,
    I was at a car boot sale (garage sale) at the weekend and one several bits and bobs.
    I thought this one looked useful but I do not know for what
    This is a view in the straight position

    and this with the end bent at 90 degrees

    the knurled bit has tapered top and rotates which moves the small end a few degrees from vertical. The top and bottom rods are 1/4" dia, I think it has something to do with a dial gauge but what I do not know
    Any ideas anyone only paid a £1 (2$) so not a lot invested , it just looked nice!!
    I have tools I don't know how to use!!

    I would not be surprised if it is somebody's G-job from when they were working as either a Tool & Diemaker or as in one of the trades either installing machinery or doing alignment work on existing machines. Looks to be just the thing for dialing in large bores to the spindle
    Forty plus years and I still have ten toes, ten fingers and both eyes. I must be doing something right.
