Historical information

The pendulum weight was used to define a vertical line. Being so large and heavy it was possibly used from a tower or a dam. It was held by one end of a wire and measured any tilt of the structure in any direction.


Possibly used on the Kiewa Hydro Electric Scheme during the construction of the dam walls and Electric Powerline towers.
