Origins of Measurement Equipment
I have been tasked with writing an essay on height gauges to include (obviously) the invention of. The farthest back I can trace it is to a German company catalog from 1905 (which, at least, tells me it was invented before this).
While Vernier invented a scale for use he did not invent a height gauge (or calipers for that matter).
Any information would be appreciated.
