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. This theodolite is fully functional, and certified accurate for surveying.
The solid brass theodolite measures 13 1/2 inches (34.3 cm) tall, and weighs 16.4 pounds (7.45 kg). The azimuth scale is 5 1/4 inches (13.3 cm) in diameter and the elevation scale is 4 3/4 inches (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 inches (20.3 cm) long. The teak tripod contains a second round spirit level and the height is adjustable to a maximum height of 5 feet, 9 1/2 inches (177 cm) with a maximum eye height of 5 1/2 feet (168 cm). The theodolite mount uses large 3 1/4 inch (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 inches (41.9 cm) long, 8 3/4 inches (22.2 cm) deep, 7 1/4 inches (18.4 cm) tall, and weighs 8 pounds (3.6 kg).
