  1. Have had a problem with bandsaw table slipping out of level every time I use it to saw lathe blanks. Have now thought for a while could put a stiffener in to stop this. Finally got to it. Two piece brace as prop and bracket to stop sideways movement. The brace has a slot cut at end to fit the web under table.

    A little before and after? Picked a level at a sale the other day... 12" long...instead of the usual brass fittings, this one has steel....maybe when brass was needed elsewhere? Both vials are intact and work as needed...price tag said $2...can't find any markings on this.... gave it a wipe down, shined the steel up...got rid of the sticker....Coat of stain..coat of varnish...we have the "After" Looks a bit better? Those handles sticking up? Well, here are 3 out of the four...the fourth was made by Millers Falls for Sears/Craftsman... uses a different type of selector... Coat of clear gloss varnish seemed to dress these up? 3 from North Brothers, and the Craftsman with a fluted handle. Still have a marking gauge to clean up.. May use a fine point black sharpie, to bring out the markings of that ruler....right now, the "beam" is stuck....maybe when things dry out around here? Dungeon Creek is running across the floor of the shop.... Stay tuned...
  3. From the album: John Morris's Hand Tools

    Just a neat old level. 12" long.
  4. Flea market find, didn't have one so for 5 bucks I had to buy it. I believe it to be a Stanley #41 clamp-on level, attaches to a straight edge. Oddly the Stanley patent date, 6/23/1896, isn't for the level but is for the process of scoring the lines on the vial.
  5. Found a Stanley level at the Restore today for $1.50. It is spot on too. Has these markings. It is only 20 years old? This is a picture from Google images. Mine says Pat 6-21-91 6-23-96
  6. Not wanting to hijack another thread about Stanley Levels.. Happen to remember I have a 24" version of a Stanley SW Level. . 24" long, Cherry & Brass. Hmm...someone even clocked the screws.... This cost me $3 a few years back...a No. 3 Level. There is even a spot to adjust the "plumb" dial Underneath this plate, is how you can adjust this dial... Both levels still work nicely. And, the Brass caps even have all their screws... May see IF the bubbles need any adjustment...sometime...Main one seems to read right on the money....
  7. I found this at a garage sale and they twisted my arm to buy it for .50 cents. After recovering at a local hospital I took it home. The wood is old looking also. I don't know how they used this. I'll hang it on a wall. This is my first post with tags, hope it works. Preston
  8. A few years ago, I picked a level at a garage sale for a couple bucks. Got it home, cleaned it up.....set it by a cabinet in the dining room.....and then......it came up missing.... Well, when the painters started to paint the dining room a week ago.....we had to move things out of the way.....laying on the floor was that old level. Has a Brass cover plate over the "Level" vial A Stanley "SW" No. 3 stamped into the plate. The "Plumb" vial has a brass cover to protect it... Needs a bit of clean up, now. All the screws are in place, even on the ends... So, I guess I will have to refinish the Cherry wood body, and shine some brass? Here is what it looked like when I first brought it home.. Not too bad. Makes me wonder what else has been lost in this house......
  9. The level collection I purchased has several levels from different time periods. One of the ways to tell when you are looking at old Wooden Level or for that matter any old Stanley tool, it is good to check the Trademark. Bob Kaune has a web page I keep bookmarked on my iPhone, iPad and Computer that is very handy to tell right off the time frame a wooden level or plane. Here is a link to his page Stanley Trademarks. So I thought I would share a few of the ones I got with common Trademarks. These all have what is known as the "V" Trademark It has been documented that this trademark was in use on Stanley tools from 1912 to 1918, That puts these right in the area of being or about to be 100 years old. For a wooden level to survive the 100 years and still have the original vials intact says something about them. There were four in the group that I got with the "V" Trademark. The two larger levels have brass caps on the ends and for the most part are in very good condition. The second one from the back is missing a brass cover over the vial port. Another thing to notice is the No 3 and the No 03. If the level had a single number then it is an adjustable level so that is something should happen, you can adjust the vials to put them back to level. If the level has a "0" in front of the number, then the level is non adjustable. I am very fortunate that all of the vials on these are original and in working order. This group is all made of Cherry. So there you have the "V" Trademark levels from Stanley made between 1912 and 1918, More Levels from Patriot Picking to follow...
  10. I acquired this nice little 9" Disston aluminum Level today. The funny part is I saw it listed on Craigslist and it was in Florence. I text the number and ask where I could see it. When the address came back I knew the address, it was my barber. I called him and he had been out collecting and came across this level. I told him I would run by and pick it up. Here is an add for the level from an April 1929 Popular Mechanics magazine. The little level is in very good condition. Just needs a little cleaning, it has dirt packed in the corners. Marked as an A-10 and Disston made in U.S.A. It has three vials and all the bubbles and intact and in good working condition. All in all it is a very nice little level to add to the collection. Patriot Picking in my backdoor. Merry Christmas and Happy Picking! Disston A-10 Aluminum Level 1929 Popular Mech.tiff
