This is to measure distances, usually for streets, alleys, etc. Don’t know the actual name of the tool.
Real estate appraisers use modern versions of this. It’s called a ‘measuring wheel’ or ‘survey walking wheel’. Nice piece. Thanks for sharing.
It’s an odometer… or maybe an emery wheel with fee… or a kind of weird office segway! 😉
You are all very close. It’s for survey, but what specifically? Think transportation!
