Two most well known Compass makers

Recommended Posts


Dear all,
If you intend to make Feng Shui a serious hobby, you should get good quality compass(es). Alternatively, you can get their economical hiking compass if you are not intending to use it so often.
The two world's best (and affordable) compass makers are:-
1. Suunto http://www.suunto.com
The type I find very useful can be found here:-

2. Silva http://www.silva.se and their Survey Master series
Both companies are truly well known.
The Suunto Pilot
================
a. For Suunto, they have another additional model: the Suunto Pilot. (For vehicles)
b. Since it is meant for vehicles with lots of steel around it, it is a pleasure to own it since, you can fully calibrate it to very high accuracy - taking into account magnetic influence in the surrounding. This is what makes it very special (to me).


c. Although, this one has fewer reading scales, nevertheless; it is handy especially as an additional check of the readings.
d. This is because, this compass can be finely calibrated to account for any zone or region in the world.
e. As Singapore is on the equator, I bought their " ZONE THREE " model which is suppose to be the optimum for countries close to the equator.
f. Please see attached. I had scanned two imagines: one from the box of the Suunto Pilot. This image will show the various zones. You should try to get one that suits your zone.
g. Next, I included a sample of the instructions for further fine tuning the calibration. This model, has a North-South calibration dial. And also a East-West calibration dial.
h. It is an advantage to have this extra model since it will help greatly to confirm readings crucial to Flying Star Feng Shui.
i. However, where possible, you should always take a reading external of a home / office / building to reconfirm what was taken inside the home.

j. Please note that even with these compasses, if one does not know the proper technique of compass readings, one can equally get incorrect readings. 


Warmest Regards,
Cecil

The above link shows a sample full brass compass which I found to be much better than the Suunto brand compasses.

Even the Suunto compasses needles are very sensitive.

For information, I no longer used these "high-tech" compasses.

But prefer to "low-tech" brass-ship type of compasses. As mentioned in the above link.

Taking compass readings often can be affected by cement floorings embedded with wire mesh + standing closer to one side of the wall.

Or standing on partial concrete and grass area etc...
