History Of Use
Ernest Hann 1889-1982. For more information see Historical Research file: Hann,Ernest/Addie. There are several pieces missing to this artifact according to Mr. Hanns son, Lloyd. He thought that it's possible that this is an adjustable arm for a drafting table. This theory was shared by Fred Hofsink. According to them, one end of this rod was secured to a drafting table by one of the 3 positions available on one end. The other end had a very thin piece of metal or wood inserted. The arm would swing in any direction with this extra piece, and work like a T-Bevel square. Lloyd Han confirmed that the majority of this father's tools were made by Ernie, as was this piece.
