Antique Large Starrett No 87 Mercury Plumb Bob Machinist Tool Maker Rare Filled For Sale
Here we have a plumb bob that you don't come across all that often and that would be a Starrett number 87, to make it even better this example is the largest size they made measuring 6 inch from the top to the point. The number 87 was a plumb Bob designed so that it can be filled with mercury which gives it a greater weight and a lower center of gravity.Most that I have found have been empty but this one seems to be filled [can here it slosh and is heavy] Condition is I would say GOOD - VERY GOOD. Has most of it's original nickle finish with just minor loss and browning. Has a small chip it looks like at the top of the cap where line comes out. Please see my close up photos which shows all this...Interesting hard to find super high quality tool by a maker more well known for thier machinist tools....Starting sale off low with and only $5.80 postage anywhere in the USA, more for foreign buyers
