It's been nearly 60 years since I was first taught how to do this but perhaps 20 years since I have actually done it in the field.

He explained everything from start to finish. A very good course.
Lee Marlow (24 Mar 2018)
Very good - all my memories of Fort Belivor, Va. and our Construction Surveying call. Enjoyed it and I did learn how to handle the set up in case the leveling bubble itself is off.
Thanks again

I would like to...
