Bakelite Opisometer Bux Map Measuring Tool

Bakelite Opisometer Bux Map Measuring Tool. A maps tool reader. In fair used condition with some scuffs and marks on the surface of the bakelite. Also known as The Bux Map Measure and dates to the 1930s-50s.

As you move the wheel across the map book, the wheel does turn and the scale in the window changes. However, the mechanism is a bit temperamental and I don’t know how accurate it is. We are selling this as a display item only.
