Clinometer Handle Compass is a reproduction of an
antique Clinometer compass. The Handle Compass gets its name from its
"handle" shaped sight, which actually serves two purposes: With the
compass level, an object can be viewed through the peep sights to
determine its magnetic heading. The second and most interesting purpose
is when tilting the compass on its side and viewing an object through
the sights, its angle of elevation or declination can be found. A
weighted pendulous arm beneath the compass needle can be read from one
of three scales: Angle in degrees beneath the zenith (from straight up),
angle in degrees of elevation or declination, and in inches per yard of
slope. The compass has a needle lift mechanism to protect the compass
jewel and the pendulous arm when being transported.
