At an auction Tue evening (woodworking stuff) I saw a caliper that looked pretty useful. Went for more than I thought it would, but I can't seem to find them online.

It's about 20" long with a triangle between the two tips, something like what I've put in the attached drawing.

Anyone know about these?

Looks like it may have been meant more as trammel points then calipers.

Perhaps dual function. The caliper portion had reasonable precision markings but the triangle seemed only for the angles. Perhaps a way to check an angle and get the length of one side without having to do the math?
