The Verdict

Rabone 1908 Square Review By: I.Ball

Category: Old Squares

Manufacturer: John Rabone And Sons

Tool Type: Try and Mitre Square

Model No: 1908

The John Rabone And Sons number 1908 is a try and mitre square from the massive John Rabone And Sons measuring tool range.

The square has a cast iron stock with a 45 degree angle for marking mitres.

The stock has a black finish on the inner faces of the stock.

The stock faces are marked 'Rabone'.

The blade is marked on one side 'J.Rabone & Sons, Birmingham, Made In England'.

This particular square had a 10 inch rule. I believe this square was made with other length rules.

The blade is marked out in inches up 10 inches which are further broken down to 1/16 increments.

The blade had the measurement markings on both sides.
