    A little garage sale find

    I was out today doing some garage sailing and stumbled across a steel ruler/protractor setup. I ponied up $2 for the set.

    I had looked for mfg. markings but didn't see anything on either.

    I cleaned the ruler enough to see that it's a TWIX brand - never heard of them.

    I was looking closer at the protractor head and see L S Starett and Co markings.

    It's pretty grimy. I'm guessing that the protractor head won't put my kid through college so I'm going to clean it up and put it to work.

    Hopefully it won't end up back in this condition under my care.

    Cheers

    Jim.

    Nice find. It ought to clean up nicely, too.

    Totally agree, I'd be tickled pink to get that for two bucks!
