My percision mechanic journeyman's piece, last update: 08.09.2019

Workshop > Handcrafted items
In 1985 I had my presicion mechanic final exam. For the practical part a journeyman's piece had to be custom built. I could choose what I wanted to built and as I had an old compass at home, which I found on a flea market, the choise was made.
I reengineered/recreated the compass. Drew the technical drawings, all with ink. Got the drawings approved with some exam relevant stipulated measurements and then manufactured the compass.

August 2019, after some more experience with Autodesk Fusion 360 I constructed the compass in CAD.
A Brunton Pocket Transit, is a precision compass made by Brunton. The instrument was patented in 1894 by a geologist named David W. Brunton.
