  • What is it...

    Anyone know what the blue tools are for? Also, is that some type of edge finder? It's got a ball connected to a spring loaded steel cable that keeps the ball retracted in. It also has what appear to be red indicator lights or something(?) Also, what are the triangle shaped items? I have a bunch and some have angles in them.

        The triangle thingy is a planer/shaper gage. But not all there.

        There are no stupid questions. But there are lots of stupid answers. This is the internet.

          Top to bottom -
          2 plug style thread gages
          Electronic edge finder. Needs battery. When in the mill spindle, the ball touches the edge of material, red light comes on.
          Triangle scraper, or deburr tool. Usually used on holes and concave edges. Missing handle, file handle works.
          Center drill for lathe tailstock.
          Planer gage. Used as adjustable parallel, measuring tool, missing accessory parts, can be used as is.
          Spring loaded tap guide. Used in mill spindle or lathe tailstock. Pointed end goes in top of tap handle to keep tap in a straight line.
          Indicator mag base. Used to hold dial test indicator. Parts missing.

            Go, no-go thread gauges (if the "no-go" goes, the threaded hole fails inspection. If the "go" thread doesn't go, the threaded hole fails inspection).

            The ball-thingy is an electronic edge finder.

            The triangle thingies are deburring / scraping tools.

            The large triangle is a planer / shaper gauge (as indicated on the box ) - see here:http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/thr...-gage-used-for

            The thing labelled "1/4-20" is a tap guide.

            The thing on the red cylinder appears to be part of a stand for a dial indicator.

              Thanks, I found the other parts to the planer gage.
