E. W. Moore Patent Pending Roof Framing Bevel / Tool E. W. Moore Patent Pending Roof Framing Bevel / Tool   I could find no info on, or other examples of this odd roof framing tool.  The wood block is marked with angled lines on the backside.  The top side is brass and marked with similar lines that are called off with different roof pitches like 4/12 - 6/12 and so forth.  There are also named pitches like half pitch - quarter pitch and so forth.  Across the bottom it says Pat. Pending.  Across the top arch is a name.  E. W. Moore and 1923 date.  Below that what looks like Light - win?  The thumbscrew has a brass washer made from a token marked with Mr. Moore's name and a San Francisco location.  The street address is unreadable.  (see pic)  Google knows nothing about any of this.  A one of?  More research needs to be done.

Smiths 1900 Patent Automatic Framing SquareSmiths 1900 Patent Automatic Framing Square  This Framing tool / square is years ahead of its time using Aluminum for the main body.  Aluminum was a new and strange material at this time.  It was brittle and this square is oftentimes found damaged.  What is here is very nice and damage free!! 

It does have an apology, or make that 2.  It should have 3 steel blades and 2 are missing.  The owner, it seems, just needed a bevel, not a complicated 3 blade calculator for roof framing.  A picture of a complete one can be seen in the sales archive of my other website.  A Google search should find that one.
