For Good Measure

1916 protractor scale from A. Edgell & Co.

J.Rabone & Sons folding rule from England

Rowney & Co. protractor scale from England

Handmade figured maple & mahogany triangle with dumbell-shaped dovetail joints.

Boxwood perforation gauge, a stamp collecting tool.

This is an actual promotional give-away printed on heavy paper, simulating a brass-fitted folding rule with an 1889 calendar on the flip side.

:: All of these fine wooden drafting tools are from the Sheaff Ephemera Archives
