72" long wood folding measure (one half inch wide) with special metal hardware on the joints. The instructions on the tool say "OIL JOINTS" All joints still work - even though I have not oiled them! (LOL) Structurally in great shape.
There is plenty of evidence of its use and age over the years - as you can see in the pictures. Lots of little scratches, general paint loss on edges, and a little discoloration on edges. Just a tiny smidgen of rust here and there on the hardware. You can see upon close inspection that the hardware originally had a brass coating on it. The two sections on the outside when it is all folded up show the most general wear.
This is such a nice tool - you could actually still use this or use it as a display piece.
Made by DUNLAP - and also says MADE IN USA
On the last photo In tiny letters you can see 1926
It also says PATENTED, so not sure if 1926 was the year patented or made.

I pride myself in being a shipping perfectionist. My items are very well packed with lots of layers of bubble wrap and filler. I often double box. I ship worldwide. Items will be shipped within two to three business days of the order being placed. USPS will be used in most cases. Buyer pays shipping and will receive tracking information.
Shipping prices can vary greatly based on your distance from Ohio, USA. When you check out, shipping options and corresponding costs are automatically provided. If you purchase Priority Express, I would appreciate if you send me an immediate message to that effect with specific information about when the item is needed. Of couse I cannot control when the item is delivered, but I will do my best to get the item into the system when it is needed quickly. In some cases, I will be able to ship at a lower cost than the shipping calculator computes. In these cases, I will refund any difference of $2.00 or more. If you feel that the shipping costs being quoted seems wrong, please feel free to contact me and I will check on it. If you are purchasing multiple items, I can often combine items in a way that will reduce the shipping so feel free to contact me for a better shipping estimate.
Large heavy items being shipped across the United States to either coast or the deep South will typically cost less with FedEx than USPS. Shorter distances from Ohio generally will ship at the best rates with USPS.
Clean recycled and reused materials are often used in packing and shipping. Please help us keep the earth as green as possible. If you would prefer all newly purchased packing materials, please make this request at the time of purchase.
