Every once in a while somebody gives me an antique tool. Today was another one of those days. Today I was given a Stanley No. 62 1/2”x 24” folding wood ruler. It seems to be in fairly good shape and I was tickled to receive it.
In the past I have arrived to the shop and found some old tools left in a box outside my shop door. Here are a couple examples.
The top one is about 9” overall. And the bottom one is 13” overall. They both have the word Ward and a makers mark stamped on them.
This wood bodied plane is 8” long with a 2” blade. The blade has Ohio Tool Co. stamped on it.
