Great Expectations Antiques

Circa: 1920's-40's
Condition: Good++
This is a very nice, clean bench or plumbing pipe plumb/level. The cast frame is 18" long, and has both the flat (bench) area, and the grooved area in the center of the bottom for round pipe or similar type work. This one feature the graduated main vial with the cutter glass graduations, plus three other vial, double plumb vials, and a cross test vial, all have cut glass marking, all are intact and working very well. This level has the black texture paint on the main casting with chrome plated fittings, including the chrome vial cover for the main top vial that can be turned to cover the vial with steel to protect it from damage. This feature also works very well. The chrome is about 95% intact, we note a few small dings at one end of the main chrome tube, where it attaches to the adjustable screws of the main frame, otherwise the cast is in very good condition, no rust, no cracks or damage, a few minor edge dings. Overall in very good used condition, a top quality bench level! It also comes with a hardwood fitted box, with good latches, and hinges. Very well made box with lap joints on the corners, in very solid condition, with some minor dings, nice finish, and good fitted pads for the level to set on. Very nice level and box overall!
