Wood Levels & Inclinometers



A. V. Shorts Patented 1905 Wooden Level / InclinometerA. V. Shorts Patented 1905 Wooden Level / Inclinometer   These unusual levels are typically found as just the metal gizmo portion because they were sold that way to be inserted into a stock of the makers choosing or design. This one is mounted on a 48" piece of cherry  that has been refinished. A bit glossy for my tastes. It could easily be toned down.

I think they were also produced in the style stock show with the cutout scallops to either side of the unit. I have seen this same make up in different sizes. The unit is very nice with all four of the bubbles and the worm drive adjuster, while stiff, works well.  Different & Nice!!
