Rabone 1167 Rule Review By: I.Ball

Category: Old Rules

Manufacturer: Rabone

Tool Type: Rule

Model No: 1167


The Rabone rule number 1167 is a four-fold folding rule made from boxwood with brass fittings.

These rules were made in different sizes, I have so far found two sizes:

- 24 inch
- 36 inch

The 1167 is marked out in inches with 1/8" increments on both sides of the rule.

The rule is marked with the wording 'Boxwood, Rabone, Made In England, No 1167'.

These rules sometimes had advertising printed on them. This particular photographed rule had the advertising markings 'Hunter & Hyland Ltd, Huntland Works, Ingrave St, London, SWII'.

"Just stumbled across your website and an absolute treasure trove of information. I was recently given an old Stanley 110 block plane and wanted to know more about it. Your website told me everything I needed to know.

But there is so much more to read. I forsee me spending a lot of time just reading page after page. I can appreciate how much time this will have taken to put together.

I just wanted to let you know that your hard work is appreciated."
