Rules / Levels / Bevels / Squares & Other Woodworking Tools
 by Stanley Rule & Level Co. & Others

The Stanley Rule and Level company was formed in the late 1850's and began their business producing a line of folding rules and Antique Carpenter & Machinist levels / Inclinometers general hardware in New Britain Conn. Levels came next, and a few years later they got into the woodworking plane making business producing a line of metal bodied planes utilizing Leonard Baileys Patents and designs for metal bodied bench planes and scrapers.

The Stanley Rule and Level Company spent a lot of time and effort developing a market and filling the need or demand of earlyBridge City Tool craftspeople wanting top quality tools.  Stanley Rule & Level Co. and the tools they made had a great reputation back when.  The Stanley name imprinted on a tool was synonymous with quality and high standards for close to 100 years and they dominated the market with their line of fine woodworking planes and other carpentry related tools.  Their line of vintage & antique woodworking tools are a favorite with both users and collectors today. 

I try to offer vintage tools by Stanley and other vintage makers tools in nice condition, and if there are major detractions I will let you know or the pics will tell the story.  Vintage tools by other makers or even those made by Stanley and marketed by other firms will be found both on this page and on other pages on this site. If you are looking for something specific use the search feature found on the right, or ask as I may have it or can point you toward it.

Beaders and routers are used for shaping edges and are often easier to use than setting up the router or other electric tool. Bailey Patent Box Shave Routers can be used to from or clean rabbits and dados with little fuss or muss.  Some are craftsman made, other later versions were manufactured by the big names in the business.  Some like the Windsor Beader were patented and came out in several versions over the years. There are hundreds of different designs and styles of spoke shaves available.  Stanley offered the largest number of and most job specific models.
