"I agree with you and have argued with several surveyors over their opinion as to surveying.  I am still learning and studying everyday but even at my level of training in surveying I can see how wrong they are.  The ones who argue with me…"

"Mr. Daniel the bearings are only relative to each other that is their basis of bearing I am asking about. I do not agree with the a Surveyors who are telling you to turn an angle in that general direction and then accept whatever you find. This is…"

"What reference would you use to verify that?  Several surveyors say that the description on a legal land description doesn't really mean much as you do not know what basis for the angles was used.  Most just shoot in the general…"

"Are the interior angles the same?"

Deward Karl Bowles replied to Roy Daniel's discussion Changing angles ????
"Not necessarily because once again they could be in a different bearing basis. If you can post the two descriptions I may be able to tell you if they agree or not. Again whithout additional information there is no way to know."

"Thanks for your reply and I would agree if both calls ended at the same place.  In this case there are two different ending places which would result in the owner either having more land than he thought or less land than he thought.  Also,…"

Changing angles ????

Hi,In 1959 a government agency bought some land and their take line was described as N 73 deg. 33 min. 40 sec. E for 682.84 feet.  The adjacent land was sold in 1984 and this same line was expressed as N 76 deg. 34 min. 56 sec. E for 682.8 feet.  How can this be the same line and the government did not buy any more land so wouldn't the original angle prevail?  In 1959 magnetic declination was 8.8 deg. E and was 6.4 deg. E in 1984. Could this error be due not using the same bearing basis?  Both…See More

Deward Karl Bowles replied to Roy Daniel's discussion Changing angles ????
"A single bearing alone does not describe an angle. It is possible that the same line was described by two different surveys that were not in the same bearing basis. It is quite possible there in no discrepancy between the two descriptions of this…"

Sokkisha (Sokkia) TM-20C

Hi all,I have started buying old theodolites and transits to compare what there is now with what was used back then. My last purchase was a Sokkisha TM-20C and I can't find a manual anywhere. Can anyone help?  This old unit works very weel but a manual would be icing on the cake. Remember, the Sin of nothing is nothing.Thanks,RoySee More
