9 inch Marples spirit level
A 9 inch spirit level made of sustainably harvested walnut rather than the now protected and increasingly rare rosewood. With upper brass plates, and lower brass tipped ends. From Joseph Marples Ltd of Sheffield, who have over 150 years experience of producing the finest joiners, and cabinet makers tools. Whilst time might have changed (only) some of their methods their commitment to quality both in craftsmanship and materials remains undimmed, as evinced by the identical antique tools that can still be found at fairs, markets, and if you are lucky, in sheds.
