Description:
Another early Stanley patent, which was used in their #71, #72 and #74 two-armed gages. This one is a fairly simple patent, with two arms held in alignment by a stubby toungue in one arm with a matching groove in the other.

This patent also marks the first appearance of a famous name in tool invention-- Traut. This Traut, however, is Frederick, father of Stanley's most prolific patent man, Justus Traut.

Stanley produced gages covered by this patent for nearly 100 years, so examples of these are plentiful (to say the least). Early examples are almost always marked with the patent date.
