Rabone 1462 Review By: I.Ball


Category: Old Rules

Manufacturer: John Rabone And Sons

Tool Type: Caliper Rule

Model No: 1462

The John Rabone And Sons rule number 1462 is a very small caliper rule made from boxwood with brass fittings.

The boxwood rule is 3 inch long and is marked out in inches with 1/8 inch increments on the front side. The rear is marked out on one edge in inches with 1/16 inch increments, the other edge is marked out in centimeters with 1 millimetre increments.

The rule has a sliding brass caliper rule with measurements on the brass caliper. The caliper feature is ideal for measuring the thickness of on an object; traditionally rope or wire.

Note: There appears to have been different versions of this rule made with different measurement markings.

Are There Any Problems / Issues With This Tool?

If the rule hasn't been looked after or if the rule has been heavily used, the numbers can be worn/faded.

The brass sliding caliper can sometimes be seized up when the tool hasn't been used for a long time.

Sometimes these rules have paint on them which can obscure the numbers.
