Hi sorbus crew,

Im in the market for a clinometer, I need one rapid (PTI in march) and am going to by the cheap one off you shortly, but I am also looking for a little info (here as it may also help others) on a more technical model at a later date.

I want to be able to measure stem diameter (upper and lower) hieght, crown spread/dimensions without having to get a tape out!

Obviously budget is a concern so what advice would you offer?

as im a total newbie

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."~Arthur Schopenhauer (German philosopher, 1788-1860)

"The acquisition of any knowledge is always of use to the intellect, because it may thus drive out useless things and retain the good. For nothing can be loved or hated unless it is first known".~Leonardo da Vinci

"The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of the planter for the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come, and point the way. He lives and labors and hopes".~Nikola Tesla

my desire to enlighten, out of love of neighbour
