Gage-All ? What?
« on: August 05, 2020, 05:52:36 AM »
Hi fellas, wondering if anyone can identify what this is and what its used for.
Bottom plate is non-farris, guessing aluminum but feels heavier than that.
Gage-all? or gauge-all Hmm
Extensive web search came up with zero!


Thanks

My 1st thought is a go- no - go gauge set.
You take a standard you  design  example 2.000 inches. But you have a plus or minus of 3 thousandths. ! side would be set up for 2.003, the other would be 1.997
It would be set up in the machine shop  and used by a assembly line person or general worker.

Looks tool-maker made.
Some kind of custom application.
Does the packaging look commercial?

one is a #6 - 6 inch and the other 9 inch from 2 different suppliers; one from brooklyn NY and the other from milwaukee Wi. but machined identically the same. I would go as far as saying they were made at the same facility. Since they did come from 2 different suppliers, I would surmise they were ordered at 2 different dates. The packaging fits each unit to a tee, but other than the suppliers name and addy there are no other identifying writings. The question is why would the end user want/need/or have to order from said suppliers instead of going straight to the manufacturer if they were custom made. These may be an off the shelf item - maybe?

Looks like some heavy duty cable connectors, electrical junction box. Pins removed when cable inserted, different sized cables for different sized pins and circuits.
VWs to D10s, I've fixed em.

Does that right label say, "Curriers for cutters?"  If so, I would surmise a machinist's gauge of some kind, but I have no idea whatsoever what kind.

Could it be a misspelled word? "Carriers"? "Couriers"?
