Stanley Odd Jobs

The Stanley #1 Odd Jobs was a tool produced by the Stanley Works from 1888 to the 1930s. It combined features of sundry tools, in a single pocketable tool, including:

  • Precision steel ruler

The name Odd Jobs denotes that the tool does many kinds of sundry tool roles. Its closest cousin among common, modern tools, is the combination square, which shares with the Odd Job the functions of scribing, squaring, level/plumb, and the sliding and locking precision steel ruler. However, the Odd Jobs still has some unique functions in its total package, including the compass, and compensated gauging.

Reproductions of the Odd Jobs are now made and/or sold by Harbor Freight, GarretWade, and Rockler. It has something of a cult following among woodworkers.
