Thread: Help identify an old gauge?

  1. #1

    Help identify an old gauge?

    Slightly off topic, but you are the guys to figure this out.. it came in a box of parts...

    Its a gauge, nickel plated, about 1 inch wide, has a handle-slides into something. No way to connect it to anything-inductive, or set by hand only??

    Reads E...F on a scale. Looks aircraft? Came in a cardboard tube thats well worn, might be a test gauge?

    Help!!

    Looks like a gas indicator to me. E = empty and F = full.

    How about a shot of the bottom? Is there anywhere for a float or an actuating rod of some kind to attach?

    Just a hunch with nothing to back it up, could be part of a test set to calibrate a fuel or oil tank.

    Here is a shot of the back. There is nothing to connect this to anything at all..

    I'd also guess a quantity gauge, could a float rod that rotates belong in that hole in the center?

    Google "us gauge co" without the quotes and click on images, some neat stuff!

    Could it be pressure activated?

    Good idea... I sent along an email, and some photos.. Fingers crossed. Not sure if it they have records, or the time to look into it, but we will see..
