This site is put together by Mel Miller, member of the Mid-West Tool Collectors Association, PAST, and PNTC. Iíve collected old tools, etc. since the mid 80s, specializing in Davis Levels and Patented planes. Patented planes are all the odd, short lived planes mfg. in the US from 1850 on by various plane makers who each had ďa better ideaĒ.

This Davis Level study is a work in progress, and comments or additional information are welcome. Original literature & information on Davis levels is scarce. I have collected & studied

these levels for over 15 years, and much of the information on this site comes from personal observation and informed guesses.   I would also like to thank the many fellow tool collectors that have contributed to this study.
 

L. L. Davis and the Davis Level & Tool Co.

Makers of fine antique cast iron & wood levels  1867-1892

Davis level production can be broken down into 3 time periods:
L. L. Davis Co. 1867 - 1875
Davis Level & Tool Co. 1875 - 1892
Davis Patent/M.W. Robinson Co. 1892 -


Within each of these time periods, different styles & types of levels were produced.
