Technical data (metric, with approx. eqivalents in inches): The sundial baseplate measures 15 x 15 cm (6 x 6 ins) and the gnomon height is around 8 cm (3.2 ins) depending on latitude. The matt circle is is 14cm. (7.9 ins) in diameter. On the underside, he pitch circle diameter of the blind and threaded M6 holes is 16 cm (6.3 ins) . The weight of the sundial is 1.75 kg (3.7 lb.)
The hour lines are labelled in Roman numerals
for winter time, and Arabic numerals for summer time. Ten-minute intervals
are indicated by short lines, and the five minute intervals by spots,
so the dial can be read to within a minute or two. Instructions of how
to set up the sundial to point to true North, so that it tells sun time
correctly, are given on our setup page. There is a wealth of other information
about sundials on www.sundials.co.uk, another website by the designer
