N. H. Closson
Tools Made: Carpenter tools and planes.
Working Dates: 1849-58.
N. (Nehemiah) H. Closson
Listed in Ref. 82 as manufacturing joiners' tools.
I have not seen any other tools by him with the exception of the rule and hammer below. The rule is 2 foot, four fold. The name and location is on the top edge. The hammer has his name but he was not a blacksmith.
Mark "N.H. CLOSSON RULE MAKER
MIDDLETOWN Ct *"
He was not listed as a blacksmith in any publication but he did make farm plows in the 1840s. So it is possible he made hammers also.
Marked "N. H. CLOSSON".
