Stanley No. 16 Plumb & Level Adjustable Carpenters
Offering this nice 28" long patented plumb & level, marked "STANLEY RULE & LEVEL CO. PAT. 6-2-91 & 6-23-96" on the level brass top plate cover. There is also another patent date on the ajustment screws brass cover "PAT. FEB. 18. 90". The cap covers the patented steel adjustment screws. Both the level and plumb glass vials are in good working order. This one has a good oblong shaped brass cover plate, and a good brass top plate, with little wear. The brass hardware is all there, and in good shape, with some minor tarnishing. There is also the one piece type brass end caps in good shape. (The cherry wood has shunk to some extent over the years, so the brass end caps are a bit larger then the wood they are fit to). The cherry wood is nice, with some corner wear and dings as you would expect in a level about 100 years old, but is not cracked, and has a nice polished finish. It sets flat, and is not warped. A nice looking, quality level!
