The Stanley London® Miner's Compass is a heavy solid brass reproduction of a handheld European Miner's compass.
A front sight folds up, and the window in the lid has a scribed line to serve as a rear sight.
The compass can determine both the magnetic heading of an object, as well as its angle of
elevation or declination.
A pendulous arm can read the vertical angle of an object of elevation or declination.
The inclination scale is printed mirror imaged so that when taking a elevation or declination measurement,
the lid with the internal mirror can be placed in the 45 degree position,
and the angle can be read while simultaneously viewing the object.
The top of the compass has a Natural Sine table to assist in trigonometric calculations in the field.
The compass rose is marked in degrees and has the original old markings.
The compass has a needle lift mechanism to protect the compass jewel when being transported.
Closing the lid activates the needle lift mechanism and opening the lid frees the needle.
The compass measures 3 1/8 inches (7.9 cm) in diameter, 1 3/8 inches (3.5 cm)
thick, and weighs a very solid 1 pound, 3 ounces (540 grams).
The Miner's Compass is beautifully polished to a high luster.
It is available with either an optional heavy leather case with rear belt loop,
a beautiful lined hardwood case, or a Hardwood Case With a Hand Inlaid Compass Rose.
Your personalized inscription up to 18 words can be engraved on the back
of this compass, or custom brass plaques are available for the outside
and/or inside lid of the optional hardwood case.
We offer a solid brass pocket compass chain 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.
The Gold Plated Heavy Pocket Compass Chain is 14 inches (35.5 cm) overall, weighs 1.1 ounces (31 grams), and costs $10.50.
The Brass Miner's Compass sells for only $67.50.
The Hardwood Case is available for $19, the Large Hardwood Case with Hand Inlaid Compass Rose is available for $32.95, and the leather case is $15.
