Model No: 36
The Stanley rule number 36 is a very small folding caliper rule made from
boxwood with brass fittings.
The rule has a sliding brass caliper rule with measurements on the brass caliper. The caliper feature is ideal for measuring the thickness of on an object; traditionally rope or wire.
The caliper rule is marked out in inches with 1/16 inch increments.
The caliper shown in the photo is classed as a caliper left-hand due to the caliper being on the left-hand arm. The rules with the caliper on the right arm are therefore called caliper right-hand.
The boxwood rule is marked out in inches with 1/8 inch increments. The two halves
each have measurements of 3 inch in length. The rule measures 6 inch
in length when the rule is opened and locked straight.
The rule is marked with the wording 'Stanley No 36' on one face of the rule.
