I've tried all the other Forum's I subscribe to. So I'll try here also. It's 24" long, 3/4" square, and has 3 scales per side. 9 , 10 , 11 on one side, 12 , 13 , 14 on another, 15 , 16 , 17 on another, 18 , 19 , 20, on another. all the divisions are per foot. ( like the 19 has 19 divisions in the foot length up to 38 for the whole length ) I'm thinking it's a one of a set because the only other marking is " New York " the maker would be on another piece.
I'll give it a try.
Scale ruler, for drafting or pattern making????
Measuring stick for fuel oil tank?
Of course I'm guessing but I think Kevin is on the right track. I'm thinking its for making patterns.
Ah...such a neat find, that is ancient measure for counting Cubits....
Cubit measuring rod.
Cubit is based on the forearm length from the middle finger tip to the elbow bottom. Cubits have been used up to Early Modern Times.
Definitely handy if it begins raining really, really hard in North Carolina!!!!!!!
