Dry Needle Compass
4566 Dry Needle Compass, £24.99
This is a basic, lidded, dry needle compass, in the style of those that preceded modern liquid-filled versions. As such it would be difficult to use at sea, and, now there are better-damped units, is really more ornamental than practical (though it does work).
There is a lever to stop the needle swinging, so that a bearing can be read. Diameter 3". It is all brass (apart from the needle!), and can be engraved on the top. Comes supplied in pouch.
This item can be engraved with up to 4 characters for £8. Please tick engraving box if you wish to take advantage of this service - when you press BUY an extra page will appear to take the details.
