Brunton F5006LM Pocket Transit
Brunton Pocket Transit
This compass is the famous Brunton Compass designed by Colorado mining engineer D. W. Brunton.  In 1894 Brunton received a patent for his new compass and within a few years it became widely used throughout the world.  Since Brunton's patent has expired, other high-quality and low-cost pocket transits have been introduced to the market.  Still, the Brunton Compass remains many geologist's most trusted tool, combining the principles of the surveyor's compass, prismatic compass, clinometer, hand level, and plumb.  It unfolds to produce two sights with peepholes.  You can either sight through a clear window in the lid or lay the lid fully open and use the second hinged peep sight.  The inside cover has a mirror with a vertical line inscribed. 
Brunton F5006LM Pocket Transit
This F5006LM Brunton Pocket Transit features a single NdFeB magnet that resists demagnetization better than other types of magnets for increased reliability.  The compass needle has a sapphire jeweled bearing and is induction damped needle for quick and high accurate readings.
The perimeter of the face has a compass rose and the interior of the compass rose has two spirit levels and a movable scale for use as a pocket transit.  There is a slotted screw on the outside of the case that turns a gear that rotates the entire compass rose to adjust your local magnetic declination angle (the difference between true north and magnetic north).  Closing the compass lid moves a needle lift mechanism that protects the jewel bearing when transporting the compass.

Brunton F5006LM Pocket Transit
Turning the compass on its side and adjusting the spirit level allows for an altitude angle measurement (while viewing the spirit level using the mirror hinged at 45-degrees). 
The Brunton Pocket Transit is still made in the USA and comes with a one-year warranty.  This model F5006LM is accurate to 1/2 degree in azimuth, and has a 10 arcminute resolution for vertical angles.  The compass measures 2 3/4 inches (7 cm) by 3 1/16 inches (7.8 cm), is 1.25 inch (3.2 cm) thick, and weighs 6.5 ounces (184 grams).  The F5006LM has a National Stock Number of NSN 6675-01-127-8394.  The list price for the F5006LM Brunton Compass with leather case is $538, but we are offering it for only $449.
International Balanced

We receive many complaints and there is much confusion about Brunton's claim of an International Balanced compass needle.  It is widely assumed that International Balancing means that the compass will work at any geographic latitude.  According to Brunton, International Balancing means that the compass will perform properly at any longitude within a specific range.  This is misleading because compass balance is affected by the Earth's magnetic dip angle which mainly varies with latitude, not longitude.  Brunton offers three models each balanced for a specific region: Northern, Central, and Southern latitudes.  We only stock the model balanced for the Nothern latitudes and Brunton does not offer free rebalancing, but rather charges $40 to rebalance the compass.
