The Stanley London® Forestry Clinometer Compass is a solid brass and copper reproduction of a medium-sized handheld Forestry Ranger's compass. The compass can determine both the magnetic heading of an object, as well as its angle of elevation or declination. An azimuth heading can be determined using the front button sight, the sighting hole, and the scribed line in the mirror. When the compass is placed on its side and the mirror is placed in the 45 degree position, the angle of the pendulous arm can be read while simultaneously viewing the object. The compass has a needle lift mechanism to protect the compass jewel when transporting. Moving the needle lift lever activates the needle lift mechanism to lock the needle.
The compass measures 2 3/4 inches (7.0 cm) in diameter, 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick, and weighs 12.5 ounces (354 grams). The Forestry Compass is beautifully polished to a high luster and comes complete with a 100% leather case. Your personalized inscription can be engraved on the front and back of this compass.
We offer a solid brass pocket compass chain measuring 14 inches (35.5 cm) overall and weighing 1.1 ounces (31 grams) as an option for your compass. The chain is specially made to be non-magnetic and will not effect the accuracy of your compass. The chain has a clasp on one end that attaches to the fob on the pocket compass and the other end can be attached to your pocket, belt, or button hole.
An optional hardwood case that features a handsome inlaid compass rose is available for storage and display as well. Each compass rose is unique and will have slight variations since they will be inlaid using similar hand tools to those used 200 years ago. The Large Hardwood Case with Hand Inlaid Compass Rose is 2 1/4 inches (5.7 cm) tall with the lid closed, 4 inches (10.2 cm) square, and weighs 7.5 ounces (213 grams). This case can be ordered with a custom solid brass plaque to be mounted on the front and/or inside lid of the box.
