Hello:
Not sure if this is the right spot for this question, but what is this thing that I bought? I know what the Mitutoyo Digimatic Indicator is obviously, but is this a "standard" setup or was this something made specifically for a shop?
I purchased it on an auction and it came out of a die stamping facility. I think I paid $12 for it.

I agree, looks like a jig for measuring something specific. When I worked for a major office furniture company, the receiving department had all kinds of devices like that to test the incoming parts for meeting specs.
