            If you have any information or questions, please let me know. Thanks        Email to plumbbobwolf@t-online.de

 

In 2007 I published the WOLF'S PATENT NEWS 2007-31 about patented LEAD and MERCURY filled plumb bobs, especially STARRETT and PERFECTION.

From the collection of Wolf Ruecker

A single PERFECTION with wooden case from Dale Riedesel, Idaho

Ed Leigan from Olympia WA USA wrote me:"I'am sending along information concerning PERFECTION plumb bobs. These were advertised in TOWER & LYON catalogs and were offered in 5 sizes. All came in fitted wood cases and were available in BRASS and POLISHED NICKEL.. Third plumb bob from left is polished nickel and the only I've ever seen. I required 6 years to assemble this complete set. ....  I know most collectors are familar with these plumb bobs but not sure how many complete sets are out there. Thought this might be of interest to fellow collectors."

Ed, thanks for this feedback
