The Hampton Nautical Solid Brass Dumpy Level (also known as an Engineer's Transit) is an instrument of impressive quality and craftsmanship. The Dumpy Level has an inverting telescope with precision crosshairs and two focusing adjustments.  An adjustable spirit level with a protective cover is located on the top of the brass telescope.  On the inside of the cover is a mirror to assist in reading the spirit level. There are three leveling adjustments on the base and it is threaded for a surveyor's tripod mount.

Utilizing the fine tuning control allows for the azimuth angle to be accurately adjusted.  There is an internal magnetic compass with an inverted compass rose, which can be read correctly through a prism. There is a knurled thumbscrew that you can set in order to freeze the orientation of the compass rose.
