To my regular customers: I am back listing more tools, taking another break from a kitchen remodel. I have a LOT of great tools that I will be listing, plus my usual "one man's junk is another man's treasure" tools and parts.

To you bevel and square collectors, I have a lot of great squares and bevels and gauges that are either listed now, or that I will be listing in the very near future!

You are bidding on one unusual thickness caliper as pictured.

It is marked "Wm JOHNSON NEWARK NJ" and the scale is marked in 8ths of an inch. It works for both outside and inside measurements, with the scale going to about 4" each direction.

Condition is fair. The retaining screw is obviously not original, and t is patina (color) and some spots of light pitting coming through the nickel finish. They operate smoothly.

Pl ease read my shipping terms below, as the US Post Office made some major changes on May 14, and so I have adjusted my terms.

Please see my other current as well as upcoming auctions, as I am or will be listing many more collectible planes and tools.

ETHICS IN DESCRIPTIONS: I also buy for my collecting on eBay, and I have been burned too many times by misleading (duh did I forget to mention .......) descriptions, and pictures only of the left side when the right side was trashed.
