Help! What is this gauge for?

Slightly off topic, but you are the guys to figure this out.. And it came in a box of parts...

Its a gauge, nickel plated, about 1 inch wide, has a handle-slides into something. No way to connect it to anything-inductive, or set by hand only??

Reads E...F on a scale. Looks aircraft? Came in a cardboard tube thats well worn, might be a test gauge?

Help!!

Looks like it would plug into a piece of machinery and show the level of a lubricant

What were the other parts in the box? Maybe they will provide a clue?

(Turn signal fluid . . . That cracks me up! )

Man, I gotta get me one of those... I can never seem to keep the fluid levels even between my right and left turn signals!

It's a manual ammeter. You plug into the lighter socket and see how far it makes you turn it. If the battery's dead, it goes to "E". If the battery's fully charged you scream "F".

It's a Polish compass. (It's ok, I'm partly Polish).

You beat me to it! I was thinking BS-o-meter also. Just insert it in the orifice of choice and take a reading.
