Nice Vintage Brass + Boxwood Maritime? Rope Gauge/caliper By J. Rabone (good) For Sale

Nice Vintage Brass + Boxwood Maritime? Rope Gauge/caliper By J. Rabone (good)

YOU ARE offerDING FOR THIS VERY NICE SLIDING CALIPER WHICH I BELIEVE WAS USED FOR MEASURING THE GIRTH (thickness) OF ROPE TO CHECK I ASSUME IF THERE IS ANY WEAR OR DAMAGE?

FIRSTLY PLEASE IGNORE THE WHITE PATCH WHICH APPEARS ON BOTH PICTURES, THIS IS SIMPLY REFLECTION FROM THE CAMERA FLASH..IT DOES NOT HIDE ANYTHING

I HAVE LISTED THIS AS MARITIME DUE TO THE FOLLOWING 2 FACTS
IN THE TEXT ABOVE ONE OF THE NUMERICAL TABLES IT MENTIONS THE WEIGHT PER 120 FATHOM COIL OF ROPE..FATHOM IS A MEASUREMENT USUALLY ASSOCIATED WITH MARITIME OR NAVAL BACKGROUND
SECONDLY THE NAME ENGRAVED INTO THE BRASS SLIDING SECTION IS "JOHN I HOPPER, LTD THORNABY ON TEES"..UNFORTUNATELY I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO FIND THIS MANUFACTURERS NAME ON THE INTERNET BUT THE "TEES" ELEMENT MADE ME THINK OF SOME POSSIBLE LINK TO THE SHIP-BUILDING INDUSTRY???
I MAY BE WRONG IN THESE THEORIES BUT HOPEFULLY COLLECTORS OF VINTAGE TOOLS WILL KNOW THE ORIGINS OF THE ITEM

THE GAUGE WAS MADE BY J. RABONE & SONS, ENGLAND....THIS IS STAMPED? INTO THE EDGE OF THE TOOL BUT I JUST COULDN'T GET A DECENT PHOTO SHOWING THIS CLEARLY

THE ITEM IS APPROX 4 1/4" LONG WHEN CLOSED COMPLETELY AND WHEN FULLY EXTENDED IT IS 8"
THE SLIDE IS SMOOTH AND THE SECTION ACTUALLY SLIDES OUT OUT COMPLETELY

OVERALL I WOULD SAY THIS IS IN VERY GOOD USED CONDITION.. IT HAS CLEARLY BEEN USED FOR ITS INTENDED PURPOSE AND NOT JUST SITTING IN A TOOL BOX, BECAUSE OF THIS THERE IS SOME TARNISH TO THE BRASS FINISH AND A COUPLE OF MINOR NICKS AND SCARATCHES HERE AND THERE BUT I THINK THIS ADDS TO THE AUTHENTICITY OF THE ITEM

TO BE FAIR I DON'T KNOW IF THE CALIPER WOULD STILL BE ACCURATE ENOUGH TO USE BUT IT REALLY IS MORE OF A COLLECTORS PIECE ANYWAY

THE TABLE ON ONE SIDE GIVES INFO ON HEMP/TWIST STRAND ROPE AND THE OTHER APPEARS TO BE THE BREAKING STRAIN OF GALVANISED HAWSER STEEL ROPES (it doesn't mean anything to me but again I am sure collectors will know)

A LOVELY VINTAGE TOOL IN GOOD ORDER.. I HJAVE SEEN THESE ITEMS MAINLY WITH HIGH BUY IT NOW PRICES OR STARTING offerS UPWARD OF £20 BUT THIS IS HERE TO BE SOLD WITH NO SUCH INCUMBANCE SO WHY NOT HAVE A offer AND ADD THIS TO YOUR COLLECTION

BECAUSE THESE SEEM TO BE QUITE SOUGHT AFTER I WILL GIVE buyers THE OPTION OF 2 POSTAGE METHODS

UK STANDARD 1st CLASS OR 1st CLASS SIGNED FOR

OVERSEAS BUYERS WILL BE GIVEN THE CHOICE OF STANDARD AIRMAIL OR INTERNATIONAL SIGNED FOR.....THE STANDARD OPTION ONKY COVERS ITEMS UP TO 20 GBP AND THE SIGNED FOR COVERS UP 50 GBP...I APPRECIATE THAT THE 2nd SHIPPING METHOD IS QUITE EXPENSIVE BUT FOR PEACE OF MIND I THINK IT IS PREFFERABLE...THIS IS WHY I HAVE MADE IT THE DEFAULT METHOD

******** IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT OVERSEAS buyers IN PARTICULAR SHOULD BE AWARE THAT ROYAL MAIL DO NOT OFFER A SIGNED FOR SERVICE FOR P.O BOX ADDRESSES ********* PLEASE BEAR THIS IN MIND

..EVEN THOUGH THIS IS ONLY A THIN PIECE I WANT TO MAKE SURE IT IS PROTECTED FOR TRANSIT AND THEREFORE IT WILL NOT FIT INTO ROYAL MAILS LARGE LETTER CATEGORY, HENCE THE MINIMUM SMALL PARCEL COST £3

THANKS FOR LOOKING AND GOOD LUCK
