Can you identify this tool?

Post  Sig Skyray on Mon Jun 08, 2015 9:25 am

I bought a small lot of plane parts and tools over the weekend and haven't identified these two.  In the first photo, on the right side is a laser that rocks in it's mount with a threaded weight in the center for adjustment and on the left is a scale that the laser points at with zero in the center.  Looks like the brackets probably grip a wing.  Everything slides left and right along the red aluminum bar.
I assume it's part of this guys modeling tools... it was an estate sale and the seller didn't have a clue as to what was in the box.
The second item are these 6 aluminum pieces each 3" long.  Covering tools?

Hey!Nice find. The 1st pic is a wing intensive gauge ( darn spellcheck ). Incidence gauge. 2nd set I would guess to be sanding blocks lol!

Thanks.  This incidence gauge is no longer available from Great Planes but MSRP was $52 at the time.

The aluminum pieces... they seem a bit short for sanding blocks to me but if they are it makes sense that the sandpaper would get pressed in between the block and the "T" handle deal.  The 3 small "T" shaped pieces fit perfectly inside the shaped tools but don't fasten or attach. No handles, no good way to grip the thing. The box came with monocote and sealing tools like a sealing iron, heat gun, covering iron, etc. so I'm wondering if it's related.  It also came with a slot machine (hinge slotting tool), all of which I have no use for at the moment....

hey I'll  send you a virtual quarter, you can drop it in the "slot machine" and pull the handle.....if it comes up all 7's....I won!  And you can send it to me lol!
Look like you got a whole bunch of goodies. Now you have the material and tools to build a airfoil wing and cover it with mojo coat ( monocoat) darn spellcheck Shocked


Looks Like they've made improvements to the tools over the years. You may have the 70's version of this style sander.

You wrap the sandpaper around the tool overlapping the ends at the top and push the U shape down to secure the paper in place, while using your thumb and forefinger to hold the sander to get in to tight spaces.
