Seller: charlescollard (448) 100%, Location: Lordswood, Chatham, Ships to: Americas, Europe, Asia, AU, Item: 162633794090 Material: Brass, Type: Engineering/ Surveying, Period: 1901 to 1950, Sub-Type: Theodolites/ Stands, Details: Precision Level Cooke Troughton & Simms Original Cooke Troughton and Sims Ltd. Precision Level You now have the opportunity to own this beautiful very rare, perfect example of English precision craftsmanship from the early 1900?s. This is a genuine, quality original CTS Precision Level manufactured in York and has the Serial Nr: 37748. This Instrument has been professionally restored and lacquered. To restore an instrument like this back to its brass takes a huge amount of work hours because of all the intricate parts. This level is in full working order. The telescope and level optics are good, and clean, with a nice clear images. The cross hairs are also clean and the instrument has been Collimated (Calibrated). What is particularly nice about these old brass instruments, is all the different shades of brass that are used in its manufacture. They weren't that good at getting the alloy mixtures correct like today. This is the instrument you usually find in old films used by Land Surveyors or on display in the Architect?s office, sitting on a tripod or on the mantelpiece. The instrument is solid brass. As an Instrument Technician previously working for Wild Heerbrugg / Leica and trained at their factory in Switzerland all my instruments are thoroughly checked before being put up for auction. We also restore old theodolites and levels on request. All my instruments are very well packed for international shipping as we all know, that everyone is not as careful as you and I. If you read my feedbacks you will see that there are comments from buyers on how well packed their instruments were received. The Tripod is not included in this sale it was only used as a prop to show off the instrument in daylight. For shipping outside of Europe please email me for a price. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask or call me on (Telephone Number Deleted because of ebay restrictions). Good Luck
