1 in stock
Here we have a U.S WW2 Cinometer and its carrying pouch made by S&W (Schwab & Wuischpard, New York) U.S.M.C. marked Clinometer complete in the original leather issue case, U.S.M.C. (Marine Corps) marked with intact belt loop and closure. These Clinometers are used to measure the steepness of an incline or the height of an object. You hold the clinometer up to your eye, sight through the peephole, and press the wheel release button. The wheel freely rotates inside the housing, showing the grade percentage next to whatever you’re sighting up or down. These devices can determine terrain grade, but you can also use them to measure structure heights. Used mostly in the Pacific war!
Super and rare item!
