This carpenter's folding ruler isn't just a cool toy to make primitive stars from. It's a bonafide Blue Grass Extension Rule, made in the US of A, by Belknap Hardware & Manufacturing Co., Louisville, Kentucky. The company went bankrupt in 1986. The Blue Grass trademark was sold to Stratton & Terstegge Hardware Co. (became S & T Hardware Stores) Louisville, Kentucky, but THIS ruler is true vintage Belknap with their clover leaf logo stamped on the wood.

So you aren't just getting a beautifully crafted measuring tool with tight brass hinges and an extra 6 inch sliding rule (so the 72 inch folding ruler extends to a full 78 inches), you're getting a little bit of history!

In very good condition for its age. This ruler was well cared for, or got little use. Might have been stored (for years!) in a drawer or tool box. Clean!

Additional return information
I describe my items honestly, so unless I have misrepresented something, all my sales are final. I am always working on decluttering, so really do not want my stuff back. :) And I have it priced to sell!

I do not like being over charged postage when I buy an item and have that same philsophy when I sell. Calculating combined postage is tricky at best since I have such diverse items for sale, SO after mailing, I often refund a dollar or two when the combined actual postage is MUCH higher than I calculated.

Additional policies

Some things I have in multiples, so if you need more of something, please don't hesitate to ask. Or if you are looking for something in particular, I would gladly consider rummaging around to find it, if I have it. I am happy to part with treasures if someone wants them. There is ALWAYS MORE. For me, it's not the *having* as much as The Thrill of the Hunt! :)

Happy Hunting!
