      "Thread gauge" for telling you what thread count you are working with. S.A.E. is threads per inch and metric is called "pitch" for number of threads per cm..

      This looks like it may be for Whitworth threads. Whitworth was invented by the Lime's to prove to the rest of the wold that they could come up with a screw system that would baffle the world !

      In my experience, they're good, but German & Swed have been better. The Whitworth is supposed to be the strongest.
