Nice… I have an old one like that “somewhere” in my shop. I’ll hafta dig it up and see if it has any identifying markings on it.

These are my two favorites, but I don’t think they would pass as antiques yet.

I’d like a marking square with pencil holes at 23, 32, 37, 69, 78.5,
81.5mm… and other dimensions relevant to 32mm cabinetmaking
standards.

I love my Woodpeckers 6” wrap square! It has .07 mm holes every 1/32 in the center of the body. Put a .07 mm mechanical pencil in a hole and draw a line that exact distance from the edge. 6 ” long by 3/4” down the side of the board lets you mark around corners. One of those ” one time tools ” they make. One peice of machined aluminum , it fits in your apron or pocket nicely.
