Rats! My six-foot Stanley folding rule broke at the second joint. I have had that rule since 1967 and used it constantly. Now I’ll have to get use to another one. If my old man were still alive he would severly berate me, “Can’t you keep anything without breaking it…”
I might have skipped oiling it as often as I should have. It was my fault. I have a Lufkin but it just doesn’t feel right. I hope I can find another at a fleamarket.
