engineers / shafting level

Collectable/ Vintage:

Collectable/ Vintage

Manufacturer:

Stanley London

A rare vintage 18" engineers / shafting spirit level in original lockable box.

This very heavy, high precision level made by the famous instrument

maker `Stanley London` not to be confused with the American Stanley tools Ltd.

Level is iron with two gun metal handles due to its weight of 5.6 kg.

The level appeared in their 1931 & 1946 catalogue number A971.

Level has a large Vee groove on underside of base for the erection of

shafting as well as for use levelling machinery, foundations etc.

Level has bubbles for both planes, both adjustable although looks to

be perfect as far as I can tell. The main level is extremely accurate, the divisions

are 20" (20 seconds, 1/ 180 of a degree or 0.001743" over the 18")

Level is in very clean condition, has numerous small chips to the black

enamel finish, the red undercoat showing through in places. Underside very

clean, no rust or damage, smooth with light scratches due to use.

Level  is stamped `STANLEY LONDON` `Made In England`

 The original hardwood box is in good solid condition, no loose joints but

distressed to the bottom edge, see pictures. Brass hinges are good as is the

two heavy brass `cabin hooks` and has original working box lock with its key.

Inside is felt lined, very clean, the level fitting tight with no play & is

clamped tight by the closure of the lid.

Size  - 20 3/8" x 5 3/4" x 4 3/8" and heavy weighing 8.1 kg.

Level is listed for cash on collection from Chingford, London E4 6PQ

but will post although pricey due to weight.
