BEAUTIFUL ANTIQUE MAHOGANY AND BRASS LEVEL 12

ANTIQUE 12" MAHOGANY AND BRASS LEVEL WITH STEEL BOTTOM
This is a very nice, well made mahogany level that I think is user made. It came to me in rough condition but it has turned out to be a beautiful level. All of the parts say quality and the workmanship is superb. This is one of the nicest craftsman made level I have ever seen. The only issue I have with it is the round head screws that were used for fastening the top brass, it makes it difficult to use it in an overhead condition. I took this one apart and re-finished it. I did polish the brass, I re-blued the bottom, added new screws that I also re-blued, and replaced the plumb vial. The level vial was already level so I left it alone. I was going to keep this one in my collection, in fact I have had it for a year or so, but I finally decided to send it out to the world. If you know of one like this one please contact me but for now it will make a nice addition to your tool collection. I weighed this little guy and it came in at 1lb-8oz, heavy for such a small level.
I am a tool collector. I concentrate most of my collecting effort on levels. I also repair and restore levels and occasionally list some of my work and collection here on eBay. If you have a level you want repaired or you need some restoration work done, let me know. If you are looking for information
