Brunton Axis Pocket Transit

The Axis was designed by geologists for geologists to enable easier, more intuitive geological measurements.  It features a revolutionary twist on traditional pocket transits!  The Axis can measure EVERY ANGLE, EVERY DIRECTION.

Product Features:

  • Innovative dual-axis, hollow hinge allows for efficient, accurate measurements of planes, lines, bearings, and inclinations.
  • Only one measurement configuration is needed for each measurement type.
  • Compass North is oriented parallel to the main hinge which rotates 360, making the Axis the only transit that can measure strike and dip simultaneously, on any surface!
  • The novel lid protractor and 360 rotation around minor axis make the Axis the only transit that can simultaneously measure trend and plunge, even on overhanging surfaces!
  • The hollow sighting tube through the hinge eliminates the need for a mirror and sighting arm.


Axis Details:

  • Adjustable needle locking mechanism
  • Hard anodized aluminum billet body
  • Vial levels on each side for easier leveling
  • Round level on compass face
  • Magnetic declination adjustment for east or west
  • O-rings for waterproof protection of compass internals
  • Manufactured by Brunton in Riverton, WY
  • Limited lifetime warranty through Brunton
