I don't know exactly what these gauges are supposed to measure, but I'd like to try a set.

Some of these may not actually be tension gauges.
None of me cares.

Fact is a snatch block will get you out of trouble almost as fast as a snatch will get you in to trouble.

From the NCD thread... this appears to be some sort of adjustable compression gauge.
