I searched for it under picture framing thinking it might be used for sizing matting but struck out there too.  Having a small rack and pinion adjustment and then hand stamped numbers sounds like it may have been repurposed but from what?

I am kind of stuck on the whole solid brass thing, why is anything solid brass? Because it is exposed to high moisture or water correct? Solid brass = ships instrument? Mapping tool?

That's what I thought and searched for it under navigation tools and struck out there also.

Cool research source Dan, love the graphic. It may have already been mentioned here, but it also appears to be some sort of gauge that should attach to a machine.

Or it was simply easier to work with than steel. Or readily available.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
