Additional Bakelite Items Used by DAK.

This next little  item I will show would be used by about anyone using a vehicle with pneumatic tires in the desert. A bakelite tire pressure gauge to check pressure  and maintain tires in the extreme climate. Enjoy!

Re: Additional Bakelite Items Used by DAK.

Here is another interesting item I picked up recently-a "French Curve" as we called it in drafting class! Nicely German inspected! Enjoy! tongue

http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll193/barronreb/DSC07873_zps1jij9dis.jpghttp://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll193/barronreb/DSC07875_zps6pqq8xas.jpg, http://i288.photobucket.com/albums/ll193/barronreb/DSC07874_zpsi44swg8p.jpg

Chris! Hope you are able to pick up this note as I read through this thread again! "French Curve" template is used for drafting (approximate to scale) non-uniform curved lines on a drawing when you don't have a radius length specified to adhere to. Very useful tool when in the field or office! smile  Barron

Re: Additional Bakelite Items Used by DAK.

Barron what is the use of that French curve?

Just an observation btw, you are using photobucket for posting pics. I would suggest to use the forum's uploading system instead, because when you move, delete or even rename your photos all of your threads will remain without pictures thus they will become useless. I was browsing the forum a few days ago and i noticed that in one of your threads some pictures were gone with only the icon of photobucket left in their place.

Re: Additional Bakelite Items Used by DAK.

Thanks for looking at my key! Just was looking on You Tube and they have a video on this exact model! Very interesting, and mentions that it was made for Luftwaffe throughout the war. cool   Barron
