What about a flow meter for adjusting the flow rate of say a liquid?

Johnno said...

Well done Ken...here is the answer

Years ago fuel delivery trucks didn’t have any type of a pump to transfer the fuel from the truck to the farmer’s storage tank. The fuel was moved in 5 gallon containers by hand. This indicator was mounted on the truck and each time a 5 gallon can was filled they advanced it one space to keep track of the gallons delivered.
