Vintage Brown & Sharpe # 20 "V" Thread, Thread Gage. USA Patent Dec 31 1895.: $20
Please see photos of this used but not abused vintage thread gauge.
No names etched on it, and no damage found. The logo and patent dates it back to the early 1900's.
Note the slightly hardened grease still on it from manufacturing. Original packing grease still on the tool indicates minimal use.
The grease softened in the sun as we took photos.
A quick soak in the parts cleaner or a bit of carb cleaner and it will be spotless.
