Re: "Lights per inch" gauge ID



Possibly, I'll put that on my list, someone else suggested it could support a small keg of beer.

This has been suggested more than any of the other ideas, but those usually have a handle on one side and the food exits from the opposite side, which I'm not sure how that would work with this thing, since the opposite side is solid.

I just found out what this one is, it's a gauge for glass. This is from a glass glossary off the web:
"Light: Another term for an entire stained glass window or a portion of one with defined boundaries."
So "lights per inch" is the same as sheets of glass per inch. I measured the gauge and found that each number on that side of it was indeed a fraction of an inch.
I did some research on the web, and found a historical Pittsburg site in which there were several references to G.W. Klages on a "Pittsburgh commodity index" page from 1913. All references to Klages mention glass cutting, as seen in the link below:

This morning I had two other people telling me that it was a leather gauge, I received a couple of emails from one of them, a leather expert who went into detail explaining how it was used and what lights meant in terms of leather. I was convinced that they were right until I found the above links.

They don't rotate, but they could still be used to hold banners or something.

I agree that it looks similar, but it's unlikely.

I don't know what the hole size is, but I'll put this on my list of possible answers. Someone else gave an answer that I like, a support for a small keg of beer.
