The Stanley London® Miner's Compass is a heavy solid brass reproduction of a handheld European Miner's compass.  Both the magnetic heading of an object, as well as its angle of elevation or declination can be determined by this compass.  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 an 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 concurrently viewing the object.  A rear sight is created when a front sight is folded up, and the scribed line in the lid of the window is used.  To aid in trigonometric calculations made in the field, the top of the compass features a Natural Sine table.  The compass rose is marked in degrees and has the original old markings.  In the southern hemisphere, the letter "O" is commonly used to abbreviate "West".  To protect the compass jewel when being carried, the compass employs a needle lift mechanism.  The needle lift mechanism is activated when the lid of the compass is closed, and the needle is freed by opening the lid.
The compass is 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.  Your personalized inscription up to 18 words can be engraved on the back of this compass.
An optional heavy leather case with rear belt loop, a beautiful lined hardwood case or a Hardwood Case with Hand Inlaid Compass Rosse is available for this compass.  Custom brass plaques are available for the outside and/or inside lid of the optional hardwood case.
We also offer a solid brass pocket compass chain as an option for your compass.  The chain will not effect the accuracy of your compass as it is specially made to be non-magnetic.  On one end the chain has a clasp 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.
