    Question Rare German cased Toolset WW2 for P08, P38 and MG08 + Beuteswaffen. Need advice

    So,I picked up the German toolset and some other interesting items.
    The previous owner died recently and much WW2 stuff was found in his house.

    The set contains 16 gauges. All are Waa stamped. Some have markings 1940 and Waa42.
    I'll show pics on all the tool+inscriptions.
    The board was placed in a lager very old Belgian cigarbox. Beside the board the cigarbox contained 19 more gauges for beuteswaffen. So, to check on captured (Belgian) weapons. They carry markings like Gewehr-Belg.-261 451 Karab 452 453

    So, my question stay's, has any one seen a set like this before. It has P08, P38, Mauser 7.92 and MG08 gauges all in one set.
    Any value idea's. If someone is enterested, PM me. If not, it will go on auction soon.
    Thanks

    No markings on the MG08 back side.








    No clue on there job?




    ERMA WAA42



    Aside this case, it was stored in an old large Belgian Cigarcase. There were several tools/gauges to measure Belgian and Brittisch weapons.
    They had markings like " Gewehr-Belg-7.65mm Karab"
    Very strange...

    Any clues?
    Thanks

    Here are the other gauges. They are for the Belgian 7.65 mausers and .303 rifles. Very facinating and intriging set. I wonder what this german his job was. The set is found in Belgium.

    Just a thought but maybe the owner was a gunsmith or worked in the armory.
