Item details

Handy and practical! This 72 inch folding wooden ruler is great! Twelve wooden sections are attached together with metal hinges which allow this ruler to open and click straight. It folds up to store making this a great practical piece for the home. The ends are painted red in the classic Lufkin style. The brass slide on the back can be removed from the piece and used. It measures 8 inches. Or slide it into the ruler and it stays securely in place!

Marked Lufkin and is made in the USA, and the model appears to be X46. The yellow paint is chipped and shows wear, please see photos.

When folded this piece measures 8 inches long by 2 1/4 inches wide. We believe this piece dates to about 1950s - 1970s.

Shipping is done within 2 - 3 business days of confirmed payment. It is usually first class or priority mail, depending on the package weight. If you need a package quicker, please email us for an expedited shipping quote.

Books, especially those that are large and heavy, will most likely ship by media mail, which takes 2 to 9 days for delivery according to USPS. This is considerable savings in the shipping cost, which is passed on to the buyer. Multiple book purchases may be shipped by priority mail. Books weighing less than 13 ounces most often ship by first class. Shipping depends on weight and destination, so please contact us if you would like an estimate of delivery time. Weather may dictate delivery time as well.

If you are an international customer and don't see your location listed, please convo us for a shipping quote. We will be happy to serve you. Any customs duties and related fees will be the responsibility of the buyer. Items going through customs take longer, so keep that in mind when you order.

Please note - The U.S postal service does not offer insurance on 1st class packages to international destinations. Therefore, we purchase insurance for your package from a 3rd party carrier so that you can be confident that we have taken care to see that your treasure arrives to you safely.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but some of our shipping charges have changed due to the annual postage rate adjustment taken by USPS.

~~~~~~
Please keep in mind that vintage items are at least 20 years old. With 20 years or more of handling, wear and tear, they will not be in perfect condition but will have a vintage charm. Even a New Old Stock (NOS) item can show signs of aging in the best of situations.
We do sell fabric items and package them with great care. Many times the fabrics, particularly silky type scarves, will shift in the mail. Please take extra care when opening the package, especially if using scissors, to avoid cutting through the protective layers and into the fabric.
