I am brand new to group and have a question regarding a boxwood type folding ruler. I purchased off of Ebay for a friend who is a master carpenter, but would like to know more about it. It’s very similar to the picks in this thread so I believe it is a Stanley. It’s 12” open and 3 1/4” closed. What makes it unusual is there is no manufacturer’s name on it at all, and also no graduations or numbering on the outside; only on the inside. It does have the number “79” stamped on the inside of the caliper, and in the notch; but the caliper is only readable from the inside. I’ve been researching online for about 2 weeks with little resolve as to the approximate date it was made,....and by who. Any help or link to other resource would be appreciated. is no longer.
