Heerbrugg T16 Theodolite F. Nr. 245305
This thing has been sitting in my basement for a couple of years now and
since I'm not doing anything with it, I want it gone. Anyway, this guy is in great
shape: clean, smooth movement on all parts, clear optics (in fact, amazing
optics), and with all the basic stuff that you'd want in a theodolite,
including big orange outer case, big orange bullet case, and a nifty theodolite
To be honest, I only know that theodolites are used in some kind of
surveying. I got this and several others at an sale years ago and
figured I could mount it in my kid's treehouse and they could use it to spot
pirates and so forth. I never did that because I showed a friend of mine
what I had and what my plan was and he was horrified that I would do such a
thing. He worked with a surveyor in college and knew what this thing
was. So here I am trying to make a buck.
When I look through the telescope thing I see crosshairs and my neighbors house
across the street. Nothing is happening over there, but the view is
amazingly clear! The zoom and focus all work great. When I look
into the little guy next to it (I thought it was a spotter scope or
something. I told you I don't know about this.) I see numbers that go
with a "V" at the top (vertical) and an "Hz" at the bottom
(horizontal). So, I'm thinking vertical and horizontal, and then I move
it up and down and around on it's base and the numbers move with it.
Aha! So that works fine. Then I do see the spotter. It's up
top and when you look into it there is a brilliant white crosshair.
The little door with a window, I don't know what that is or what it does, but
the mirror and the window inside are clean and intact.
All the levels are fine and work. The movement on it is really
smooth. A little spin and the thing will go around four or five times.
I'm selling this as is, and starting it at $100 so shipping and insurance and
charges will be covered, and I'll make a couple of bucks to take my wife out to dinner to make up for all the junk I have around the house.
I'll ship as soon as payment has been
received. PAYPAL ONLY! I've been scammed before as a buyer so we're
doing it that way. Also, since this is sold "As is" there will
be no refunds. Please ask all questions before you offer and I'll
try to let you know as much as I can. I'm just trying to get rid of the
thing and don't want it coming back.
Contiguous U.S. only. I won't ship to Alaska, Hawaii, PR, or Timbuktu, so
So, that's what I can tell you. If you have any other questions, shoot me
By the way, if this goes well for me, I'll also be selling a couple of
others. There's a Wild T1, a Pentax, and I'm not sure what the others
are. I think maybe another T1 and maybe another T16. If interested
let me know. The misses wants them gone.
Thanks for looking!
Payment must be made within two days of
sale's end. Please contact me if you need to make other arrangements. Like I
said, I want to get rid of this so let's get moving.
Again, AS IS! ALL SALES ARE FINAL! Really. I don't want to play games. I'm starting low and don't want it back.
I’ll ship this within two days after payment has been received and
cleared (excluding holidays and weekends).
I’ll send it in its shipment box if you like, or I can place it in
another box with padding all around it if you want. Shipping charges are included in the price,
so don’t sweat it. I’m sending it UPS
ground and figuring about $25-30 to get it around the country. If you’re all hot for it and want it even
faster then you’ll need to contact me and I’ll charge you more accordingly.
I can’t control how much time it takes the good old UPS to get
the package sent to you, so don’t bust my chops regarding that score. I’ll let you know as soon as I ship it and
get a delivery estimate for you.
I’m not shipping anywhere outside of the contiguous states, so
forget about it.
If you have any questions get hold of me through and I’ll get
back to you ASAP.
