Topic tags/keywords: tool question free haul stuff

Greetings and salutations Lumberjacks! It’s been months since I’ve posted here, super busy and exiting year so far, not to mention it’s freaking HOT! I got a super nice tool haul from a friend who got them from a friend and didn’t need them. 3 beefy drills, Makita circular saw, angle grinder, huge full socket sets, vehicle lift ramps, spoke shave, combination squares… a lot, for free. I came across this little pouch in one of the boxes and have no idea what it is. The little thin metal things have inch increments on them, and the handle on top has a slot with a spring loaded clip in it that looks like it’s supposed to clip onto them. It looks useful, but would be considerably more so if I knew what it was :)

Thanks everyone!

Looks like radius gauges to me, just a guess.

Definitely radius gauges. Don’t know about the included clip thing.

Gauging the size of a radius :) seriously. Typically a machinist tool but can be used in woodworking as well. Just got a set recently.

I have a Lufkin set, but have never used them. In woodworking it just doesn’t matter enough that you need fractional gages.
