Nope--it's a decidedly non-theological surveying instrument for measuring angles in horizontal and vertical planes, although some (and we think maybe these, given the OD paint) are used by the military in meteorology and rocketry. Measures approx 7-1/2" x 5" x 4" with a plethora of moving parts: optical head that pivots up and down; focal knob calibrated from 0 to -90 and +10 to + 80; horizontal and vertical adjustments with a locking lever; and a 1-5/8" dia ball with a 1/2" hole in the bottom for a mount. Weighs in at over 5 lbs. The paint is chipping, but you would too at this age.
FEAR NO NORDIC GAS
Able to stand up to the infamous Helsinki Miasma, this brand new gas mask hails from the Finnish military (it's the standard NATO M61 model, although Finland isn’t in NATO) but we sell them for decorations. Don't depend on it for self-preservation. In gray rubber with the filter on the side and adjustable straps, it measures approx 8" tall x 5-1/2" wide and is very similar to the U.S M-9A1.
Doesn’t seem to be a bunch of difference between combat helmets in the woods around Prague or Budapest, but we’ve got them both. Both Czech and Hungarian helmets have padded adjustable leather inserts in olive drab steel pots with adjustable chin straps. (Don’t say this too loudly, but the Czech liners seems to assume perfectly round heads, while the Hungarian one is a more head-like oblong.) All are lightly used but in good condition.
Our finest foolproof tarp clips have a screw-down system so you can tighten the teeth on the jaws until the tarp (or rope or whatever) is a prisoner forever, come wind, rain, sleet, etc, etc. Measure 3-1/4" long x 1" wide with jaws that open to a 3/8" max and a 1/2" hole at the other end for a bungee cord. In black high-impact nylon. From TEKTON®, our each is a 4-pack.
