    A wooden triangular angle divider which was homemade by either Alfred or Bernard Lake and features four (4) arms instead of the usual two and is secured by a small rope tied around the body. The two smaller arms fold away into the two larger arms, making it easier to store. One arm has some increments hand marked in pencil, these include: 5", 8 1/2", 9 1/2", and 12". An angle divider is used to set or measure angles.
