Shortland Smiths Aneroid Barometers

Shortland Smiths Compensated Aneroid Barometers

Toolcraft offers you the rare opportunity to acquire one or more of an extremely limited quantity of beautiful Aneroid Barometers made by well known scientific instrument maker Shortland Smiths of England.  Shortland Smiths no longer produces these mechanisms and Toolcraft is very excited about this rare find.

These beautiful barometers were found in a sealed box in one of our client's workshops, gathering dust!

They are wonderful for mounting onto highly figured timber panels or inserting into a carved frame.

What is an Aneroid Barometer?

Simply described, it is an instrument used for measuring atmospheric pressure via a method that does not involve liquid. Invented in 1844 by French scientist Lucien Vidi, the Aneroid Barometer uses a small, flexible metal box called an Aneroid Cell or Capsule, which is made from an alloy of beryllium and copper.
