This was in a box of T stuff and I have no idea what it is. Can anyone tell me what this was used for?
I can make a guess, stand for sharpening saws.
Tunable goose call! Them some honking big bills.
I think Mark is on the right track. Whatever the heck it is, it's "tunable" to achieve a particular pitch.
How far does it open? I was thinking inside caliper, as well.
It might have been used for checking the inside diameter of rear axle bearing sleeves. That could explain it being with T parts.
It does not open enough to be an inside caliper but that is what I originally thought it might be. It also has holes in the base that must be for mounting to a work bench. Sure has me stumped.
You might try posting at Alloy artifacts page
Thanks Ken I will try that. Finding out what it is has become a bit of a challenge
I wonder? The base bolts down, the left side seems to be stationary but the right side will pivot with the thumb screw being low. Could this be to put an inner tube on to spread it sideways to put a patch on while keeping the rubber tight?
It looks like it would be well suited to forming something, perhaps leather for shoes, saddles, etc. or felt for hats.
My grandmother used a similar looking object made of wood when darning socks.
Could you post a photo looking down at it from above, and include the ruler for reference to size?
Here is a shot looking down and a shot with it open as far as it will go.
Neat little running board box. I think it's a clamp of sorts,just can't figure out what.
That little running board box is identical to the one that is on my '13, except naturally mine's black! Just the right size, looks perfect on it.
I have that on my '14 speedster. I took it off to put the stripe on it so it was drying on the work bench. Tomorrow it goes back on the speedster.
