An alidade is an essential tool for use in plane table surveying.
The Moidart History Group has tried unsuccessfully to find a supplier
of a good-quality product — so Harry Clyne, a superb engineer
within the group made a limited quantity for us. Harry passed away
recently and in his honour we have renamed them. These precision-engineered
CLYNE alidades are made completely from recycled materials, apart
from the screws and the stainless steel sighting wire, with a solid
hard plastic base and commercially-anodised aluminium sights. They
are closely modelled on the alidades used by the RCAHMS Scotland's
Rural Past project.
The Moidart History Group has a small supply of these alidades
still for sale - all profits go to group funds. They are available
for £79.99 each, including delivery anywhere in the United
Dimensions are 430mm long x 40mm wide x 15mm deep (some are 25mm
deep) - the sights are 217mm high from the upper surface of the
base, and the alidade folds flat.
