Vintage Art Deco Aluminum Lufkin Lumber Gauge To Work On That Pile of Wood, c. 1920
Featured in Lufkin's 1920 catalog, the Lufkin Lumber Gauge was a handy tool for any carpenter and even yard manager to have when receiving lumber and board stock. Each step on this art deco tool measures the width of the board to verify accuracy. Prior to large standardization in lumber stock, yard managers of retail lumber sites had to be very careful when receiving milled stock. Very often there was a bit of discrepancy between what was ordered and what was produced. This handy little tool kept the boys all on the same page.
This is something of a collectible. The aluminum is nicely finished and it does show a spot of use on the finger ring. Gauge number 00 with measurements from 3/8" to 2". Inscribed THE LUFKIN RULE CO. SAGINAW, MICHIGAN MADE IN U.S.A.
Start workin' on a pile of wood. Yes. That's right. I said it, but ZZ Top said it first!
