  • Surveyor

    Someone gave me this old tool this morning to add to my little private museum, it came with the original wooden box. Still trying to figure out the date it was made. On the tool itself it says: T.H.S. Co. No: 20126 Click image for larger version

    Dumpy level. I have one and use it more often than I ever would have thought I might. Did you get the measuring rod with it?

        Original type Tripods may be hard to find. Newer aluminum ones are easy to find.

          You are probably correct. I have the complete original package, bought at a garage sale for about $100 about 15-20 years ago. My tripod has wood dowel legs with a machined brass top and pot metal (zinc / aluminum?) hardware everywhere else. The pot metal is doing the usual expand and crack. I think it's very susceptible to moisture.
