Hatch Floor Clamp - $235

48" long x 7" wide x 16" high.

Here is an unusual tool that is dated May 27, 1884. This is a Hatch Floor Clamp that was used to keep hardwood floors tight when laying them back in the 1800s. The tool has various settings that can be used to measure the floors. There is evidence of wear on the handles and metal that has been used over the years. The old red paint was used on the floor clamp and was stenciled over with the patent date. We have many requests for tools, and this is an unusual one. Call or come by for additional details.
