Hoping to find some info on vintage Keuffel Esser.
Hello to all, new guy here, I decided to join with hopes of finding some info on some K&E transits and some other obscure transits and or theodolites I have collected over the years. If you can steer me to the correct category title within the forum, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking : Keuffel Esser fan
Welcome to the Forum. Be sure to check back as I'm confident many will chime in with some info to help in your quest. K&E made some excellent equipment.
I'm an old transit collector too. Kinda looking for a lietz from 1923....
Most of my K&E are old EDM boxes that sit on top of Wild theodolites. I think I have 3 such Autoranger EDMs.
I've got an autoranger S.
It's not worth much, but I used it. So it has value to me. I've got a survey up in mena, with a significant error on it from that EDM. It was possible to mis-aim it, and get a signal return, that would be wrong by some 30 feet. We got run off by a local farmer, so I never went back and fixed it. Another surveyor found it, and fixed it.
