To all 'whom t may concern Be it known that l, HARRY F. SUTTON, a citizen of the United States, residing at Wyoming, in the county of Luzerne and State of Pennsylvania, have. invented certain new and useful improvements in TracleGages and Level-Boards; and l do hereby declare the following to be a full, clear, and exact description of the inven tion, such as will enable others skilled in the art to which it appertains to make and use the same, reference being had to the accompanying drawings, and to the letters and figures of reference marked thereon, which form a part of this specification.
This invention relates to new and useful improvements in combined levels and track gages and comprises a simple and eflicient device of this nature having various details of construction and combinations and arrangements of parts which will be hereinafter fully described, shown in the accompanying drawings and then specifically defined in the appended claims.
l illustrate my invention in the accompanying drawings, in whichz Figure l is a perspective view of the track gage. Fig. 2 is a top plan view. Fig. 3 is a sectional view longitudinally through one end of the gage.
Reference now being had to the details of the drawings by letter, A designates a board of any suitable material having a handle opening B for convenience in raising the device, and fastened to the under edge of the board is a plate D having lateral extensions E at one end with lugs F projecting at right angles therefrom, adapted to engage the rail of a railway. Said plate is countersunken in the recess A formed in the bottom of the board as shown and its lower face is flush with the lower edge of the board. A spirit level H is seated in the upper edge of the level and at one end of the board on the under edge thereof is an angled plate l. A. graduated bar O having series of teeth O upon one edge thereof is mounted to have a play through a transverse opening 02 formed in one end of the board and also the plate K and has a. lateral ex- Specication of Letters Patent.

O in said bar O to hold the latter in an adjusted position.
By the provision of a track gage and level made in accordance with my invention, it will be noted that a simple and eilicient device is afforded whereby the two are combined in one and so arranged that the gage may be held in various adjusted positions by means of the graduated bar which affords means for holding one end of the gage at different elevations.
1What I claim to be new is 1. A combined track gage and level consisting of an apertured board with a level thereon, a plate fastened at one end of said board and having lateral projections adapted to engage a railway rail, a second plate with an offset therein fastened to the under edge of the board adjacent to its other end and a graduated bar passing through the aperture in the board and having teeth upon one edge thereof, a lateral extension at one end of the bar adapted to seat in said oifset in said second plate through which the bar passes, a plate having a lateral extension for engagement with the teeth of said bar, and a screw for holding the last mentioned plate in an adjusted position, as set forth.
EZ. A combined track level and" gage coinprising an apertured board with a level thereon, plates fastened to the under edge of said board, one of said plates having lateral extensions, the other plate having an offset therein forming a recess, a graduated bar movable through the aperture in the board and having teeth upon one edge thereof, a plate upon the under edge of the In testimony whereof I hereunto aX my board and having a lateral extension signature n presence of two witnesses.
adapted to enOaUe the teeth of said bar the latter provddb with a lateral extenson HARRY F' SUTTON' 5 which, when the bar is at its farthest inner vWitnesses:
throw, seats n the recess in the plate having WVM. GARST,
