Great Expectations Antiques

Circa: 1920's-40's
Condition: Good++
Manufacturer: THE BUCKEYE PLASTIC CORP. CLEVELAND OHIO
Offering this hard to find 9.0" long Level Plumb Inclinometer with two steel magnetic features cast into an aluminum frame with the maker's name clearly marked on the steel in-cast segments "THE BUCKEYE PLASTIC CORP. CLEVELAND OHIO MADE IN U.S.A. MAGNO-LEVEL PAT PEND."  A nice example of innovation!  The angle gauge has been tested and does work and is accurate.  The magnets hold fairly will depending on the size of the part you are laying against.  Overall condition is very good, you have the V shape on one side of the frame for setting on pipe, and the other side is flat for setting on flat metallic surfaces.  No damage, no rust, some paint loss, but really nice overall!  One of the few I've seen with both clear plastic lens intact.  (We note some minor scratches on the lens, but still able to see the angle increment marking easily).  Hard to find vintage innovation!
