    I suspect this mini torpedo level is made by the same company that Oxwall Tools outsourced making their mini torpedo level since it looks exactly the same with only a minor difference between this one and ones stamped "Oxwall". Oxwall Tools started in 1947 so I'm guessing this level is from sometime between '47 and the 60's. I could be wrong so don't quote me on that as fact. If you know more definitivly please chime in.

    Though considered a cheap tool then, now refurbished to a finer finish it rivals even today's finer quality tools.

    You can read more about the this project, get more information on the history of Oxwall Tools in a blog post I wrote about the project at the link below:

    If you can solve the mystery as to whom actually manufactured it, that would be great too!

    Cheers...
