    It looks like and early FLEX FOUR

    This looks like the design of a man named HOWE who made a device to test frame stiffness or string bed stiffness as I recall. is there a scale that reads in pounds?kg on it or does it have some other markings ?

    It looks like a Howe Flex III string bed stiffness tester, but it's missing the gauge to show the results.
    I have one I got in '87, along with a frame flex tester. The two of them together were about $150 back then, as I recall.
