Description:
One of the classic patent gages. The premise here is quite simple, but really ingenious-- use a single screw to hold 3 or 4 arms by shaping the arms such that a single pressure point can lock them all. This worked quite well, making these popular tools in their day.

This gage was produced for about 20 years, in both 3- and 4-arm configurations. The shape of the arm on the 3-arm gage was slightly different than that shown in the patent drawing (it was hexagonal, rather than triangular).
