Rabone 1166 Rule Review By: I.Ball

Category: Old Rules

Manufacturer: Rabone

Tool Type: Rule

Model No: 1166


The Rabone rule number 1166 is a four-fold folding rule made from boxwood with brass fittings.

Sometimes these rules were made in different sizes, I have so far found size:

- 24 inch (2ft)

The 1166 is marked out in inches with 1/8" increments on one side of the rule and 1/16" increments on the other side of the rule.

The rule is marked with the wording 'Warranted Boxwood, Rabone, Made In England, No 1166'.

These rules sometimes had advertising printed on them.
