WONDERFUL E L DEANE 1886 PATENT ADJUSTABLE SQUARE - HOLYOKE MASS
I've been unable to locate this patent online or find any other information after a diligent search. This square was patented by E L Deane on Sept. 28 1886 and Apr. 12 1892 which is clearly stamped several times on the it.
The square pivots and has a cam lock and what I believe to be a micro adjustment mechanism. It is in superb condition. The wood appears to be made of mahogany and maple and considering its age is in remarkable condition. The locking and adjustment mechanism has about 90% original nickel plating. This is a superb piece.
