Vintage GENERAL ANGLE DIVIDER Old Tool No. 835, Works!

Vintage GENERAL ANGLE DIVIDER Old Tool No. 835, Works! - eBay (item 310015187751 end time Jan-22-08 18:11:51 PST)

This vintage angle divider is marked, "Angle Divider, Made in U.S.A. General No. 835." There are two scales: one marked 30, 45 and 60 degrees; the other marked 0, 10, 8, 6, 5 and 4. A John Shiock etched his name on it in two different places.

I have no idea how it works, but I'm sure you do. I showed it spread open in the last shot, but it opens all the way, no limits. UPDATE: I see from other listings how it works. I shouldn't have opened it like that, but I restored it to the way I found it, so no worries.

The old tool is solid and ready to work for you if you'll forgive the patina and minor rust spots on the silvery finish.

I can't swear but I believe this John Shiock lived in Punxsutawney, PA and is now deceased after a long, rich, full life. Are you thinking of the same fellow?
