Antique & Collectible
Rules / Levels / Bevels / Squares & Other Woodworking Tools
 by Stanley Rule & Level Co. & Others

The Stanley Rule and Level company was formed in the late 1850's and began their business producing a line of folding rules and Antique Carpenter & Machinist levels / Inclinometers general hardware in New Britain Conn. Levels came next, and a few years later they got into the woodworking plane making business producing a line of metal bodied planes utilizing Leonard Baileys Patents and designs for metal bodied bench planes and scrapers.

The Stanley Rule and Level Company spent a lot of time and effort developing a market and filling the need or demand of earlyBridge City Tool craftspeople wanting top quality tools.  Stanley Rule & Level Co. and the tools they made had a great reputation way back when.  The Stanley name imprinted on a tool was synonymous with quality and high standards for close to 100 years and they dominated the market with their line of fine woodworking planes and other carpentry related tools.  These vintage & antique woodworking as well as their other vintage tools are a favorite with both users and collectors today. 

I try to offer vintage tools by Stanley and other vintage makers  in nice condition, and if there are major detractions I will let you know or the pics will tell the story.  Vintage tools by other makers or even those made by Stanley and marketed by other firms will be found both on this page and on other pages on this site. If you are looking for something specific use the search feature found on the right, or ask as I may have it or can point you toward it.
