I searched for a thread on mystery tools with different search terms. I came up with a few, but didn’t find what I was trying to identify.

I won a lot of Starrett stuff on eBay and this came with it. I have no idea what it’s specific purpose.

It has 3 set screws that push on a ground piece of steel. The middle screw isn’t a set screw, it’s actually threaded into the piece of steel.

Anyone able to identify this?

Thanks!

Taki,

Looks like the base to some sort of height gauge?

Maybe the base to a height gauge or a scale holder

Looks like a base for a dial /vernier/electronic caliper

Sure looks like a surface gauge base like used with a scriber. Here is an example.

There’s definitely a strong resemblance to that picture. I think you got the nail on the head sir.

To everyone, thanks for the input.

It has nothing to do with a surface gage. I have seen pics of similar bases before, I stand by my earlier post.
