​This long range EDM was given to me by LIStech in 2000. The little brother CD6 was the first EDM I ever used.

W Ottway & Co

1/7

​It seemed the right thing to buy at the time. It was cheap and close to home. Great condition and originial box. Come with an old woodern staff.

​Measuring Chain
Abney Level

1/2

1/4

​In excellent condition this chain was purchased in 2006 from eBay and come via Tasmania. I don't think its been ever been used.

​This Abney level (Tamaya Brand) turned up in my kit back in the early 1980's and has not been used since mid 1980's. Sits in the store room for the young guys to ask what it is.

Standard Band

1/1

This is a standard calibrated band used to compare your field band for distance. Come in the old standard canvas reel that we all though we could wind quicker than anyone else. Donated by Ron Demarco again..

Carl Zeiss Optical Square

1/4

​Neat little double sided optical square used at Dartmouth Dam in the 1970's. Nice little leather case.

Cowley Level

1/6

​This little instrument was the first levelling device I ever used at secondary school and pointed me in the direction of surveying. Had it for years and think it was given to me by a friend of my father. I have the original tripod and staff.

Wooden Stave

1/2

​Come as part of a level I bought many years ago. Will restore as time permits.

Clino
Kern DKM 2

1/3

1/8
Thommen Barometer
 

1/1

​I used to carry this around in the car in the old days just in case I needed it. Sits in the store room these days.

​II saw this on eBay years ago and it was at a good price for a quality item. The DKM 2  belonged to the Royal Australian Navy and has had little use. Nice piece of gear.

​Been part of my kit for ages. Only used these days for yearly calibration of our Total Stations. Swiss made.
