Map Measurer Instructions
Thats the POINTER, DIAL and TRACING WHEEL.
- Set the pointer to 0 by turning the wheel so that the pointer "counts down" and passes 0. Now bring the pointer forward to 0. This will take up any slack in the gears.
- To give greater control when using the measurer, hold the measurer on the knurled surface between the thumb abd middle finger, placing the index finger on the top of the handle.
- Hold measurer vertically with the tacing wheel set at the beginning of the route on the map, then run it along the route to the destination. the pointer will indicate on the dial the exact distance traced."
...and so it goes on.......

cockolly cutters (back)
This is mu most unusual find..both in the same old suitcase with a mixture of treasures.
I couldn't find the cutters..but at least I have whats left of the box!
The Metal thing has "RONSON World's greatest lighter" stamped on it.
I know they are not related..but they have been together for years...
Not sure what a Cockolly cutter is?
