FINE Antique clapboard gauge, Nesters Patent 1867
Clapboard Gauge-Offered is an antique clapboard gauge marked "Nesters Patent, December 31st, 1867"
Has rosewood body with brass trim
Measures 12" long
Top section has a level with good vial
One end has brass thumb screw that adjusts brass foot between 1-9" along inscribed brass rule with a scribe point on other end
Also has 1-12" inscribed rule
One side is brass plated with adjustable brass slitter
An impressive, patented tool in "as found" uncleaned condition
100% complete and in working order
Good bubble
Only minor wear to the wood
This is quite a complicated old adjustable gauge
Nester's patent 1867 clearly marked in brass with cute little level that works just as it should
Wood body appears to be rosewood with two brass adjustable knobs
The little knob on end adjusts up & the arm that is used to measure
The other larger brass knob just slides back & forth end to end apparently to scribe a measured clapboard
NOTE: I am working with UK Patent Office to get more information
