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 an engineer within the group
has made a limited quantity for us. These precision-engineered 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 being used by the RCAHMS Scotland’s
Rural Past project.
The Moidart History Group has a small supply of these alidades
for sale - all profits go to group funds. They are available for
£79.99 each, including delivery anywhere in the United Kingdom.
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.
