Tricometric Indicator Support

#272884 by db5 » Tue Aug 04, 2020 5:44 pm

From 1965. I'll bet if JPG goes through his miscellaneous engineering tools he has one of these somewhere.

I think someone drew the support upside down and on the wrong side of the bracket. :eek:

I used to have one similar, but it had 5 threaded ends.

It looks like it should do a good job, but I'm not sure what job that is.

I had one of those. Got it from my uncle Rube G. It worked great.

I believe it's original design intention was to measure wind shield wiper blades of a specific brand. :rolleyes:

I have one of those, set up, my Shopsmith with it. Worked perfectly.
FYI do not believe people that say you can not free hand cut perfect circles on a Shopsmith setup in table saw mode. :cool:

You can threads the posts with a standard die but you need a special tap to the cut the threads in the ambihelical nuts.
