                                                  About what I do.
            I have an extensive collection of surveying instruments, and optical 
tooling equipment that are available for sale. I am no longer accepting any
instrument repair, restoration, calibration,
or machine work.

          I have a large stock of instrument parts
me at:
          Please remember most old parts do not interchange and must be 
fitted, or made.
          Please E-mail about needed parts with as much information as
possible and photos of the instrument and old part or parts, measurements
must be in inches and thousands of a inch. Fractions or metric measurements
are totally useless.

I do not accept consignments, please don't ask me to sell a instrument for you.

Prices and availability will be quoted upon request

Please read this first before asking about parts.

I have in stock over a thousand level vials of various sizes and sensitivities.
I need to know when asking for a particular vial the free length inside the tube,
the inside diameter to the nearest thousands of a inch, the length of the window
opening and desired sensitivity, or its application. Measurements in fractions are
useless, please get help from a machine shop for the measurements.
Prices will be quoted upon request.

I do not do appraisals or give values.

For values of a instrument it is best to watch ebay “completed auctions” over several
months seeing sales not relisted but sold. “Ended” prices are useless at best.. “Sold”
prices are what you can go by. What things are listed for is often very unrealistic.

I am not able give a value for a instrument unless I have it here to inspect.

If you want help dating or identifying a instrument E-mail me, please include photos in
Jpeg 640 X 480 size.
; all markings i.e.: numbers, names, labels; also measurements
in your first email.  The more information the better. You may experience delays in my
response to your questions about your instrument as I must take care of my customers
needs first. Please do not email any attachments. I do not open any attachments
unless prior correspondence has been made
Insert any photos, or other information
in the text of the email. Please try searching the internet before contacting me.
Often a simple search will answer your questions. I often find that to be true, please don't
waste my time by not trying a search yourself before contacting me.

Also I would appreciate a response to my return emails.
