1 Oldish type hand drill. no makers name or marks on it. First one I've seen that can have the handle removed and turned into a pistol type drill. 2 A 2ft four fold rule has "Trade Mark" & "Hockney Abbey", with some sort of brand alps or mountains etc. on the inside where the metric measures are the wood is beveled out. why I don't know "fashion statement perhaps". I couldn't actually find this design on google. I had no luck finding the drill either.

    The picture of the folding ruler is a bit blurry but it is a folding story pole ruler. They aren't used much anymore except perhaps by an old school mason. I just googled it to be sure and came up with the same item. I haven't seen one in 30 or 40 years. Value is about $18.

    The beveled edge on the ruler allows for accurate lineup of your pencil with the graduation marks on the ruler.
    Very nice, I like the old four folds!
