7 inch Complete Transit Theodolite

This instrument has been used on important work as, for example, by the Canadian and United States governments in boundary surveys. It is well adapted for time and latitude observation, as well as triangulation and general survey work. We have supplied them to nearly all the leading colleges of this country. as it is particularly well adapted for purposes of instruction.

The U-shaped standards are employed in construction, great strength resulting from their being cast in one piece. The graduations of the horizontal circle are on a beveled edge, and read to 30" by two opposite verniers, the circle being divided into 1/3 degree. Attached reading glasses are provided for both the horizontal and the vertical circles if desired. The vertical circle is 5 1/2" in diameter and reads to 30" by double opposite verniers. Both the circle and the verniers are fully protected by covering guards. The telescope is inverting. The extra long center is of steel, resting in a cast-iron bearing, giving strength, durability and smoothness of motion, thus permitting extra sensitive levels.

Other Specifications

The horizontal circle has a diameter of 7" inside of the graduations, and 8 1/8" outside. The graduations are in 1/3 degrees, and read to 30" by double opposite verniers. The vertical circle has a diameter of 4 1/2" inside the graduations, and 5 1/2" outside. This circle also reads to 30" by double opposite vemiers.
