We are proud to offer this beautiful detailed and functional and calibrated solid brass reproduction of a precision theodolite.
Theodolites are still used today for ultra high precision optical alignment and measurement.
The theodolite comes with a beautiful hardwood case and a teak and brass surveying tripod.
There is a spirit level and three adjustable legs for fine leveling. The azimuth and elevation axes can be read on a vernier scale with the aid of built-in magnifiers.
Both axes have slow motion controls and the telescope can plunge and reverse to reduce bearing errors. The azimuth axis has a second spirit level mounted on the telescope with a mirror to assist in leveling.
The telescope utilizes precision optics and has a brass lens cover. A magnetic compass is mounted on the azimuth axis.
The solid brass theodolite measures 13 1/2" (34.3 cm) tall, and weighs 16.4 pounds (7.45 kg). The azimuth scale is 5 1/4" (13.3 cm) in diameter and the elevation scale is 4 3/4" (12.1 cm) in diameter.
The theodolite's 22-power non-inverting telescope has two focusing adjustments; one for the precision reticule focus and another for focusing the target. The telescope measures 8" (20.3 cm) long.
The teak tripod contains a second round spirit level and the height is adjustable to a maximum height of 5' 9 1/2" (177 cm) with a maximum eye height of 5 1/2' (168 cm).
The theodolite mount uses large 3 1/4" (8.25 cm) diameter course thread. The theodolite and tripod weigh 30 pounds (13.6 kg).
A beautiful solid hardwood case is included to store and carry the theodolite. The case has an internal lock and the case measures 16 1/2" (41.9 cm) long, 8 3/4" (22.2 cm) deep, 7 1/4" (18.4 cm) tall, and weighs 8 pounds (3.6 kg). The case has storage for accessories and includes a plumb.
This theodolite is fully functional, and certified accurate for surveying.
