    In my previous post I gave a brief description of this old level.
    I made some restorations, so I can show you now how things work. I had no time to make a nice pictures with proper light now, but I promise to do my best soon :)
    Enjoy!

      Thanks for sharing this unique piece. I wonder how many know the skill involved in hammering this out?

      As I thought. It works upside down. Didn't know it had the lips for hanging on the top of things. Didn't they make digital models?

      They made the digital units after people learned to read.

      Then we are moving backwards as the literacy rate seems to be dropping every year. Damned, I just had to use "Bing" to get the correct spelling for literacy! Just joking. Maybe using this "new" technology again soon.
