Description:
Justus Traut of the Stanley Rule and Level Company is back, this time with a pretty blatant ripoff of Alban Heiran's patent (219942) for "bumpers" on a marking gage face. The only difference between this and the earlier patent is that Heiran used rollers, while Traut just uses cast bumps.

One new idea in this patent is the capability to mark off of bevelled edges by using the same "bumper" turned 90 degrees. I don't think Stanley ever put this horizontal bumper into production, but the twin bumpers were a mainstay of the Stanley line for many years.
