Rabone 1167 Rule Review By: I.Ball
Category: Old Rules
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'.
