This is a nice clean early inside micrometer set with a capacity of 2-8 by using interchangeable rods. The interesting note about this old design is that the rods where inserted into the micrometer head, then the scribe lines on the head and rod have to be aligned for the various lengthes desired. The No. 120 model was discontinued in the 1930's and the new No. 124 was offered after that. The No. 124 model was different, perhaps better, because although it's design was about the same the new rod design featured a solid stop, and rods for each 1 increment offered, where this one has a line to be matched up in the head every 1/2 on the rod. The head has .5 travel. The head is marked THE L.S. STARRETT CO. ATHOL MASS. U.S.A. and is still in very good condition, with very minor darkening of the steel in a few place, and good snug movement, like a top quality new micrometer has. The case is leather covered wood, hinged, and a front clasp. The top of the case has the Starrett name in the center.

This is a nice clean 10 long special purpose pliers, mounted on a end nipper style frame. I don't know for sure what the application was for this tool, but I believe it was intended for use with fire arms of some sort. The large casting part attached on one side of the plier jaw area is about 3.25 long and swivals 90 degrees, is threaded in the back section, and has another thread insert inside of that in the back area, all threaded parts are pinned in place, or set to a none adjustable position, except for the swival part that moves freely. This is a precision tool of some sort, and care was taken in machining all the features and locking them in place. On the inside of the casting, the outside diameter is .65, the next smaller Inside diameter is .510, the next smaller diameter is .292 and the void in between measure a depth from the top of 2.35 inside the casting. The center section has some play in it, so it will move slightly off center, about .01 total from what I can see. The other side of the jaws is a threaded screw pinned in place at what appears to be a pre-set distance from the other side of about .10 . The pliers are marked THE STARR NETTLETON MFG. CO. PATENTED inside a round logo. A very interesting tool, in good condition overall!

This is a unique patented wrench set design that features multiple different sized open end wrench heads and two handles that fits each wrench head. The set is made by PARK METALWARE CO. INC. ORCHARD PARK N.Y. XCEL MULTI-HEAD WRENCH WARRANTED PAT. APR.29.1925. Part of the inside label is intact and reads MACHINE WRENCH . The inside of the case has about 35% of it's original paint intact, the outside has only about 5% intact.

This is a very early bevel protractor marked BROWN and also has the LBS logo. One similar to this one is listed in the 1924 B&S catalog, but this is an earlier one, as the 1924 model has the number 493 marked on it. This one is in good used condition with a few small dings and a few tiny stains, but I feel it is still a very good example of a early Brown & Sharpe designed tool, and a good collector tool as well, as the overall condition is very good considering it's age. The lines and numbers were rather small on this tool, so they were hard to capture in the photo, but I noticed the photographer in the 1924 catalog had the same problem. They are actually in pretty nice shape on this tool. They did increase the size of the numbers slightly in the years that followed.
This is a rule clamp, marked Lufkin No. 8. It is design to hold 2 steel rules together. The rule can be various widths up to 1 1/4 . The mottled blue finish is in good condition. Shows little signs of wear of use. A very nice machinist tool!
Brown & Sharpe Magnetic Block No. 760 & Fitted Case
Offering this nice magnetic block marked Brown long overall. It's square, and precision ground. Turn the switch to on to hold the part, off to release the part and anywhere in between for a lighter hold if a strong hold is not needed. I have used this type block for grinding, it has limits on part size, but holds very well if the part is about the same width (2 1/2 ) or more. I use it more for inspection of parts we hold a part on an angle is easier for example. This block has a steel side rail and end rail from help in holding parts square (included). The condition is very good with only a few minor scratches, and an identification number lightly etched into the bottom clearance area. Also included is a heavy duty hardwood case which has the B & S name marked on it. The case has an old repair on the side (shown in last picture) but is very solid and really help to protect this great old tool. Brown & Sharpe first offered the No. 760 block in 1940, but I am not sure if this one is that old. You can still buy a new one from a B&S distributor and they list for over $500.
