Great Expectations Antiques

Circa: 1930-40's
Condition: Good+
Manufacturer: Stanley Rule & Level Co. New Britian Conn. U.S.A.
This is a quality made mortise, marking gage that is not marked with the Stanley name, but is a Stanley made gauge. It is 7.5" long, has a total of 3 scribe points, one is adjustable via the end brass thumb screw. The main shaft is graduated by inch, from 0-3". It made of rosewood, with brass trim. It is complete with the brass pad under the slide thumb screw to protect the rosewood from damage when the screw is tightened. We note an old repair of the slide that appears to have been cracks at one time, but it is a good repair using wood screws, and the slide works fine and is flat and square to the beam. This gauge is nice, clean, no cracks or major chips, a few tiny dings, and minor wear on the slide on the opposite side of the brass inlaid plate, good threads, good points. There is a name and some initials from post owner's on this tool, otherwise in very good working condition, with very good steel scribes. A good user gauge!
