1613. A TaylorMade golf club display stand, these can be found near the indoor practice area in a golf shop. It would not have held a full set, but a selection of different models of the same number club, I saw a display like this in a local shop and it was full of six irons. The clubs were available for customers to hit a few balls with each to compare the performance of the various models.

1614. A Cathetometer, "used for measuring vertical displacement in areas that are inaccessible to an indicator, scriber or other mechanical checking devices because of distance or combinations of blended curves." See page 84 of the Leitz catalog for a listing of this device.
