What is a Surveyor's Compass ?
ANSWER show&hide     INFO show&hide
A surveyor's compass consists of a long, thin, pointed needle of magnetized steel with a small conical-shaped bearing of agate material at the centre. One end of this needle points north and the opposite end points south. The agate bearing works on a pointed pivot of hard steel carried at the centre of the low cylindrical metal box. Attached to the opposite ends of this box are two sighting vanes which enable a definite line of sight to be defined or laid out. It can either be screwed on to a tripod or remain hand-held for the purpose of measuring magnetic bearings.
