Hansen Poising Tool

From The American Horologist magazine, May 1940

Hansen Poising Tool 

In a recent issue of THE AMERICAN HOROLOGIST there appeared an article on the Hansen Poising Tool. This was merely an advance notice in regards to this particular tool. Mr. Hansen is endeavoring to get into production and meet the many demands which have been received since this article appeared.

All who have made inquiry. or those interested in this latest design of poising tool, he asks for your patience; and just as soon as the tool is ready for distribution - those who have ordered, or requested samples, will receive them.
