This collection set comprises 6 gauges, all rescued from various machines now put out to pasture. I collected them with a view to making an art work – they all have that fabulous industrial vibe – but just haven’t gotten round to it. And truth be told- they look just as great heaped together as a collection on a shelf.
In the same way that I love vintage kitchen scales, slide rules and cameras – I love gauges. It’s something about the moving parts and the way that functional objects were crafted so beautifully in the 40s and 50s.
For sale: $AUD95 [I would love to see what you will do with the gauges…]
