Weems and Plath Hand Bearing Compass

Hi,

I am looking for someone that wants to part with a Weems & Plath Hand Bearing Compass.

I'm based in Florida.

Re: Weems and Plath Hand Bearing Compass

I have a brand new Davis illuminated hand bearing compass. I'll sell it for $30 plus shipping, if you're interested.

Re: Weems and Plath Hand Bearing Compass

Just in case you didn't know; If it's the model in the wooden box, you'll also find them under the brand name "Saura".

I have one of these and just like onestep, I'm hangin' on to it!

Thanks but I'm set on the W&P! Maybe someone can sell one for super cheap because they feel sorry for me?

Re: Weems and Plath Hand Bearing Compass

I had one of these for years & couldn't find a replacemnent when it was lost. Best hand compass I know of. The usual bearing sighting with dial view & numbers. ALSO, it is totally clear and reads through to a chart with a magnifying lens so you can plot directly on a paper chart. Lighted too.

I think W&P makes/made a couple of versions. Are you looking for the new hockey puck style or the old pistol grip version?

Re: Weems and Plath Hand Bearing Compass

New hockey puck style... they are expensive when new! Being that its a "nice to have" and not a "need to have" (I have binocs with a compass), I'm willing to wait for a great deal.

That was new so sounds like just the regular price and no bargain.

Never mind.
