    Now that makes since. The two points would work on both sides of disc. May find someone who needs it, doesn’t seem to work very well in measuring lead boolits tho because it cuts into lead. Will measure groves, with a light touch tho.

    Scherr-Tumico.inc. St. James Minn. USA on barrel under crud layer. Anvil point has a screw in end maybe some type of changeable point? May be just some kind of comparator like M-Tecs said.
