The old man and I recently went out to a friend’s place to help her clear out her garage. Way in the back of it we found a giant tool chest of drawers and a few cabinets full of tools. Most of it was crap and we didn’t get to go through everything that night, but in the fading light of evening what we did manage to find made us very excited. This old Stanley level was buried back there gathering dust.
A quick wipe with a rag revealed that both vials were completely intact, and it was indeed a Stanley. At first I thought it might have been a No. 96; however every 96 I’ve seen has a brass ring around the side vial and this didn’t look like it ever had one there. I’m not really sure what it is, but regardless it’s pretty damn cool and we’re excited to see what else is back there when we return soon.
