Description:
Here is an unusual design for marking off curves. It uses two lugs on the bottom of a shortened head as reference surfaces, which allows this gage to easily work off almost any inside or outside curve.

This piece was assigned to the Stanley Rule & Level Company, but was never put into production (that I know of). Stanley may have bought this design to prevent it from competing with it's own curve marking patent (334308), or it may have decided this mew design was not as cost effective as the earlier patent.
