      Should be a marking on it somewhere?

      Looks like a kitchenaider. It is a sliding ruler that was used by a cabinet maker to lay out cabinets in a kitchen. Anymore most of us would just lay it out on the wall or floor with chalk lines so it could be changed until the homeowner is satisfied. Modern premade cabinets don't require anything but a tape measure and a laptop.

      Kitchenaider put me on the track to figure it out. No markings as to manufacturer. Possible he brought it over from Norway. His 93 yr old grandson confirms he was a full service carpenter.
