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.
