Miniature Mining Plummet Lamp Plumb Bob

Here is a finely crafted and unique machinist-made Miniature Mining Plummet Lamp Plumb Bob with a working Oil Lamp suspended in a Gimble Mount.

It was crafted with extreme attention to detail to match a rare full size example of this type of Plumb Bob. 

This miniature version weighs approximately 2 ounces including the hook, chain, and yoke.

It measures exactly 2" from the top of the cap that covers the tiny wick to the end of the steel tip.

This is the third in a series of finely crafted miniature plumb bobs.

Miniature Fancy Brass Surveyor's Plumb Bob with Leather Pouch

This finely detailed miniature surveyor's plumb bob measures just over 1 1/4".

This little plumb bob weighs in at a bit less than 5 grams and measures just over 1 1/4" from top to bottom. 

The details on this miniature plumb bob are astonishing.  The top unscrews and the steel tip is cross drilled to look just like a full size one. 

A tiny plumb like this is just perfect for your collection.

Miniature Fancy Brass Plumb Bob with Built in Reel

This stunning little plumb bob weighs just a bit less then 9 grams and measures a whisker under one and a half inches. 

This fully functional miniature plumb bob is made of brass and steel and is loosely modeled after the patented J.A. TRAUT design that was produced by Stanley. 

The little reel actually works.  Notice the attention to detail in its construction, including the “rope knurling” on both the reel and the body. 

It is just under 1 1/2"

....and fits nicely in the palm of your hand.
