Rigging tension meter

When I bought my boat, it came with a "Mark II Tension Meter" made by Lipton Marine Industries to set up the standing rigging. I found a Lipton Marine Industries on the web but they don't make anything like the tension meter and couldn't help me. Does anyone own one of these, have the manual or can tell me how to use it. It doesn't have the same scale as a Loos meter and uses a rod for some type of calibration and you take a percentage of this reading. It probably had some type of table or graph with it originally.
Thanks for your help.
