After years of making Jacob's Staffs for my college's geology program, we've perfected a model that is field-hardy and student-approved! A woodworking inclinometer is attached to a hardwood staff with a metal base, with a sighting tube situated at a height of 1.5 meters mounted on an oak platform. The inclinometer can measure angles up to 90 degrees in either direction, with single degree graduations. White heat-shrink stripes are at 25 cm increments and are visible in many lighting situations and from long distances. With its unique built-in inclinometer, our Jacob's Staff avoids costly damages that often occur when expensive compasses/transits are attached at the top, as most other Jacob's Staffs require. This model allows accurate bed thicknesses to be measured by students and professionals alike!
