What's this?

Recommended Posts

 This little thing belonged to my father. Not sure what it is for, but I think it is some kind of rev counter. Only about three inches long. There is a rubber on the  end, the point of which I think goes in the centre of shaft/spindle or whatever. That revolves and the dial moves round the graduations.

Correct Norm.  I have one too.  Same make but slightly different to yours.  Mine came from John's and is missing the rubber.

Pete.

 

Thanks Pete. That explains why my father had it. He was a toolmaker and worked in machine shops all his life.
