Today we are offering for sale an antique L.S. Starrett precision bench level with double plumb vials. L.S. Starrett Company was founded in 1880 and is still in business! This spefic level is still manufactured by the company (model number 132-24) and it retails new for over $500. This piece features an attractive filigree design that provides a lighter weight, and the curved design evenly dissipates excess heat. The base of the levels features an involute groove running the length of the base, which provides a reliable seat for round work; also includes a main vial and double plumb vials. Main vials have approximately 19-minute sensitivity, if the bubble moves 1/8” off the graduated lines, out-of-level is approximately .080″ per foot. Although faint from age, the L.S. Starrett mark can be seen on the steel plate above center plumb vial. This vintage piece features an awesome and very nice patina from being used and enjoyed. The paint finish has minor distressing/oxidation throughout; otherwise all fine and working. Fresh find from an old New England attic. A piece not to be missed!
