Mass production of brass mounted boxwood folding rules was in full swing on both sides of the Atlantic by the mid-1800s. Fitting perfectly in the breast pocket of a workman’s overalls, the brass-mounted 2-Foot 4-Fold Rule was highly favored by joiners, carpenters and tradesman for durability and convenience. The triple-arch joint was considered the strongest type of folding rule, and consequently was the most expensive.
