Very probably Lineto’s wonderful Gravur Condensed.

What works very nicely — at least it did for me — is to use Isonorm Monospaced and add 10% weight to it FontLab or some tool like that — by using the fully automated process. This rather weird process results in a very vernacular typeface that is strangely rounded and feels strangely un-designed.
The only irritating thing about Lineto is the pricing in Schweizer Franken. I tried to contact Wendlin and Co about Euro pricings for Courier Sans, but to no avail…

Thanks — uh, they’re really not that cheap at all. 188 Euro for 3 weights… jeez.

hey, Stephen, that’s pretty darn close! I think it’s a match! Thanks! Do you know any US type foundries
carry that face for sale??

As far as I know it’s exclusively Lineto. I know, they are pricey.
Sagmeister can afford those fonts, the rest of us cannot.

LOL! true true! Thanks Stephen~ ;-)

You could always try other fonts in the vernacular/industrial vein, like Garage Gothic from Font Bureau, or Emigre’s Platelet.

Thanks Heinrich!
Your NOGA is a very nice face. Very clean and modern. I like the numbers too; except the Gravur Condensed is rounded on the edges. I will definately keep you in mind for my future uses! Does it come with Oblique and/or light styles too?

dc, NOGA remains with the three weights. without oblique.

You could also try FF Isonorm 3098 for this rounded
“technical drawing” feel. At $99 for 4 weights it’s a
bargain. And Mecanorma has a single weight for $22!

(I prefer the Lineto version though. They’ve really got
some killer deigns over there.)
