ANTIQUE KEUFFEL & ESSER ARCHITECT LEVEL / TRANSIT - WOOD CASE & ACCESS. - MINT!


















Description

 

A beautiful antique Keuffel and Esser "Architects Level" (Wye or Y level) in original mahogany dovetailed case (key) with original instruction book (last patent date 1909) and accessories as shown. It's solid brass with a "gun metal" finish and it's signed by K&E and numbered "23982". It has original paper labels inside with "repair/adjustment" notes from the 1950's. Box is also signed by K&E with original retailer tag "BK Elliott & Co. Drafting Supplies, Pittsburg/Cleveland" (leather strap broken, some staining to box). Instrument appears to be in superb condition with no damage to glass or levels. We know little about engineering tools so it's sold "as found". Size: 11" long and 7" high circa early 1900's. Weight before packaging about 10 pounds. Received this note from a collector on eBay regarding this level:

Its a Model # 5115 and part of a larger group within the 5000 models.
The serial number 23982 tells me your Y level was made in 1911. The reason it is called a Y level or convertible level is because it can be converted by unscrewing the small plugs at the center of the scope and the two posts screw into the exposed treads. You can then turn the scope and let the larger round ends sit in the craddles giving the level a free spinning and tilt action.
