Category: Old Levels

Manufacturer: Stanley

Tool Type: Level

Model No: 102


The Stanley level number 102 is a wooden level made up of a wooden stock with a single bubble housed within a brass framed window on the top face.

The Stanley 102 level was one of the earliest Stanley tools made.

The 102 level went on to have a very long manufacturing time-frame running from the 1ate 1850's to the 1930's.

The level was advertised in the Stanley wooden plumb and level section of the tool catalogues.

The Stanley 102 level went on to be advertised as a small stock level especially adapted for use by Millwrights and Plumbers, or for any work where a level of greater length and cross section cannot be readily used.

The level had a 2 3/8" x 1 1/4" wooden stock which was available in four different lengths: 10", 12", 14" and 16".

"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."
