Help NIST identify these mysterious scientific objects

The National Institute of Standards and Technology accumulates hundreds of odd scientific and technical items each year, often without knowing their exact name or purpose. They have posted photos of various vintage items, and their tentative title in an effort to identify them. In coming months, NIST will add hundreds more mystery tools to those already posted. Check the NIST site often and if you can help identify any of these obscure objects, let NIST know.

    I identified 2010.0348.001. It is a wheatstone bridge if I am correct.
