Frictionless Metal Advertising Levels by L. S. StarrettFrictionless Metal Advertising Levels by L. S. Starrett  These small Frictionless Metal advertising levels made by Starrett are pretty rare. One top plate is marked Starrett, the other is not.  Both have a very fine inscription on the side saying compliments of Frictionless Metal.
hhh
For the uninitiated, Frictionless Metal made Babbitt bearing metal, a lead / nickel metal alloy for pouring babbitt bearings in old machinery.  Look for the ingots of Frictionless Metal Babbitt I have listed elsewhere, as well as other Frictionless Metal advertising pieces I have.

Helb Patent American Combined Level & Grade Finder / InclinometerHelb Patent American Combined Level & Grade Finder / Inclinometer   The Helb Patent Level / Inclinometer is a classic piece of American ingenuity. There are many different versions or types of wood used in different models.  This example was stained / painted, and there are losses to that finish.

Helb packed a lot of features into his unusual patented tool. It has a sighting tube, compass, in addition to the standard level vials and gravity inclinometer feature. All of those are OK.  Maker info and more on the brass plate on top. Charts on the dial face.  It could easily be refinished as the main features are all OK.

The Beall Tool Co. InclinometerThe Beall Tool Co. Inclinometer  The Beall Tool Co. is still in business and now offers a digital version of this table saw set-up inclinometer tool. To use, the bar is magnetized and would be affixed to your saw blade.  You would then read the blade angle or tilt where the brass plumb bob like pendulum met the gauge below.  I could find no reference to this earlier version inclinometer they offered anywhere on the internet.  Like new in original box.  Every level / inclinometer collection needs one!  Or use it for the purpose it was designed to do if you do not like digital and batteries in the shop.
