It isn't an aircraft part or maintenance tool. If so, it would have no logo, but rather part numbers, federal stock number, and serial number.

I would guess that it is part of the base for a trophy, or even a sculpture.

To me it's a gauge for measuring distances between hydraulic lines maybe for inspection off the line. Or a really ineffective pair of a metal knuckles.

The prep-cook uses it, while prepping for Bagel-Tuesdays.

The seal on it says 1957. It looks a bit too new to be an original whatever it was. I think it could be a part from a mount for a scale replica jet from the late 50s, *shrug*

are there any markings on the rear ????

because - without a part number or serial number - how is anyone supposed to know what it is ??

without an ID code - my vote = decorative object

22 year Air Force Vet here. Parts and tools do not have the Official Air Force Seal on them...ever. It's a piece off an award, trophy, or retirement shadow box. We come up with the weirdest stuff for recognizing our folks. Nothing sinister or nefarious to see here...move along.

That's a perfectly reasonable solution to the wear problem.

Don't let Worf hear you say that. You know how dangerous Ferengis can be when angry.

What are the exact dimensions of length, thickness, radial arcs of the radii etc? It looks like something familiar but without knowing those its even harder to determine.

About 6 inches long, 2 Inches wide the circles are about inch to inch and a half
I was thinking part of a plaque that had some coins or something like that
No other markings or anything accept for the double sided tape on the back.

Just an educated guess, but it looks like a cosmetic cover plate or a bulkhead opening. The double-sided tape probably kept it in place, and there were probably rubber grommets that fit in the openings. Might be one part of a 2-piece cover.

WOW I haven't seen one of those in years!!!

That's an examination tool. It's called the gut gauge. It's used to measure a pilots nads to see if he has what it takes to fly fighters....Nads must meet a minimum circumference and weight in order to become a US fighter pilot....

Seconded. 13 years, and we never had the seal on any kind of part or tool. Nobody here seems to be interested in hearing that though, they want it to be something cool.
