Dual-gap setting gauges 10 and 11 are provided on a common base 12 in Fig. 1. The common base is overlayed under gauge 10 with a flexible, conductive plate 13. The base 12 and plate 13 are connected through 14 to one terminal of power supply 15. The dual gauges are held in place by insulated screws 16 and separated from plate 13 at the ends by insulated washers. The dual gauges are respectively connected 17 and 18 to lights 19 and 20, which are both connected to the other terminal of the power source 15.
