Hi all. Just bought this sweet old spirit level on ebay. Seller didn’t know the manufacturer so I was wondering if anyone out there recognizes what’s left of the old paper trademark.

There are probably some very good clues engraved on the metal part of the level. Could you throw a few pictures up of that part of the level?

Could possibly your picture showing the label be upside down?

Hey Don, appears to be no makers mark anywhere on the metal. Maybe the screw set out is a clue, like unique to some particular maker. No/203 clearly stamped on the timber. Dumb me for sure BlasterStumps, definitely posted photo upside down! Sheeesh!
