condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: THE LUFKIN RULE CO.
model name / number: CHROME CLAD
This is a very nice, rare large size, measuring tape with the steel 100' tape, CHROME CLAD "THE LUFKIN RULE CO. SAGINAW MICH. U.S.A. 100ft. This has the push button feature that causes the folding exterior tape crank handle to pop out so one can wind the tape back in cranking it sort of like a fishing reel. Works very well! The steel tape is very clean, not rusty, no damage, about 99% like new, no torn or cut areas, and the tape end folding/flip catch is in great shape. This one has the 1/8ths inch graduations, and the tape is in great shape! This is certainly a collectible tool, as quality large tapes like this are no longer made today. The leather on the outside is real leather, and in very good shape and good stitching. The body under the leather is steel, and the hand crank area is nickel plated steel and brass with about 98% of the nickel plating intact overall. This is a 100 foot tape measure. By a well known toolmaker in the mid-1900's era! A tape of this quality would cost well over $100 for this size if it were being manufactured today. A classic collectible tape measure!
