This is a rarely seen 10" mitre square marked "Challenge Cutlery Corp. Bridgeport Conn. Patented 1921". The tool is clean and rust free, but has had minor rust pitting on it in years gone by, but only in a few small areas, minor pitting noted mostly on side opposite the maker's mark. Otherwise all the working surfaces are in very good shape except for the sharp edges are the end of the miter angle 45 degrees, a minimal rounding over noted. The inch increment are easy to read, and only stamped on one side, the other side with no markings. The guide lips are on both side for both shown and reverse mitres can be set by pushing the square up to the work piece edge. The lip is 1/4" high. A old version of the miter squares seen new on the market today are made of aluminum in many cases, this one is all steel, with a nice polished finish. In good useable condition overall. We find this one to be very similar to a later patented miter square "FOX's", that was patented in 1921. This one has an extra thick rail in the area connecting the 45 degree angle section to the graduated section, otherwise basically identical by comparison.
