Stanley 25 Sliding Bevel Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Stanley
Tool Type: Sliding Bevel
Model No: 25


The Stanley sliding bevel number 25 is made with a Rosewood stock, a blued steel blade and brass fittings.

The Rosewood stock is shaped with a finger / thumb grip grooves on either face, offering the user extra grip and giving the tool a more elaborate design over many other similar makes.

The top and bottom of the stock is fitted with solid brass plates giving the tool a good quality look.

The Stanley 25 bevel is equipped with a quick release wing nut which allows the blade to easily be locked in position by swivelling the wing nut until tight.
