      They had an ad in the Middletown Constitution in1855 stating they were going to make rules exclusively. They were selling all the machinery for making try squares, gauges and sliding T-bevels.

     I have very little information on this company. Reported in the New London (CT) Daily Chronicle, Jan 9, 1856 a fire destroyed a building housing this company, Cooley & Co. and Chamberlain & Lewis Co. The buildings were on the corner of Church and Hamblin Street.   Map Y.

     Pictured is a try square.
