UP FOR AUCTION IS A VINTAGE ANTIQUE BROWN & SHARPE RULE DEPTH GAGE 6" #616 NEAR MINT IN BOX (t are a couple of blemishes on the edges of the rule and top knob). THIS IS A METAL DEPTH GAGE RULER THAT IS QUITE OLD ALTHOUGH I DO NOT KNOW THE EXACT AGE OF THIS PIECE (I believe it to be from about the 1930's). I TOOK A LOT OF PICTURES TO SHOW IT BEST AND USED SUPER-SIZE AS WELL. THIS IS AS CLOSE TO MINT AS YOU WILL FIND CONSIDERING THE AGE POTENTIAL. IT MOVES IN ALL POSITIONS FREELY. ON THE FRONT T ARE 2 SCREW-TYPE KNOBS THE TOP ONE ALLOWS YOU TO ADJUST THE RULER LENGTH THE BOTTOM ONE ALLOWS YOU TO SET THE ANGLE YOU DESIRE. ON THE FRONT IT HAS BROWN & SHARPE MFG. CO. PROVIDENCE, R.I. U.S.A. B.S 616. ON THE BACK IT HAS THE GRADUATED ANGLE INCREMENTS. ON THE RULE IT HAS B&S MFG. CO. PROV. R.I. U.S.A. No. 10 TEMPERED 32 AND ALL THE INCREMENTS OF MEASURE IN 32nds. ON THE BACK IT HAS THE INCREMENTS OF MEASURE IN 64ths. ALL #'S AND LETTERS ARE STAMPED IN THE SURFACE. IT COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL BOX WHICH READS: BROWN & SHARPE RULE DEPTH GAGE 616 6" No. 10 GRAD.ENGLISH ONE. IT ALSO COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL PAPERWORK AND WAX PAPER IT WAS WRAPPED WITH. T IS NO RESERVE ON THIS AUCTION. THIS WOULD MAKE A FINE ADDITION TO ANYONE'S COLLECTION. I HAVE A LOT MORE VINTAGE L.S. STARRETT CO. & BROWN & SHARPE MFG. ON AUCTION AT THIS TIME CHECK THEM OUT .
