Book Description:
INSTRUMENTS MANUFACTURED BY MAHN CO INTRODUCTION. HAVING received many applications for Catalogues and Cuts of otir Instruments, we have issued this pamphlet, pending the preparation of a inore complete Catalogue. We must say, however, that with our superior facilities, consisting of the latest and most improved machinery and tools, with the advantages of steam po n7er, large practical and technical experience, we are enabled to compete with the best makers in quality of work as well as in prices. To our patrons who have favored us with their orders we give our sincerest thanks and to our patrons, present and future, we give our word never to cease to have every possible care taken in order not to allow any instrument to leave our Factory unless we can guarantee its perfection in every particular and we say with some coinplacence that our Factory has the means to compete with makers of worldwide fame. We are very confident that hereafter Western Engineers, Colleges, and other Educational Institutions need not go further for their instruments for in prices, as well as in quality, we are enabled to compete with the oldest and bestknown factories in the eastern market. We do not claim to make a very cheap instrument it is a fact well known to us that there are in the market instruinents made only to sell, and, as to precision, have nothing but the name. These instruments are sold at prices low enough,. but there is not a surveyor or engineer who does not know how many are the inconveniences, damages, and 1Gses of time which are invariably the result of their faulty construction. Our experience and pride forbid us to enter into cotnpetition with these, but if our prices are compared with the lists of the best makers, a good saving is apparent and as for quality, in order to justify our claim, we do not hesitate to send our responsible patrons the instruments for inspection, trial, or comparison, in order to enable them to form their owl1 judgment. The suggestions of our patrons will always be cheerfully accepted as the result of an experience, which, to the con structor, sometimes may pass unobserved. One of these suggestions, after careful consideration, has led us to construct a middle weight about 7 pounds transit, for mining, mountain and prospecting work, which we really believe is far superior to anything mzde for the same purpose to day. All suggestions of the experienced engineer, with the careful consideration of the constructor, cannot fail to give good results, and we are always sincerely pleased to accept the judgment of those whose experience qualifies them to give wise counsel. Besides our transit theodolites, transits, levels, etc., we make to order every variety of scientific as well as geodetic instruments, as will be seen further on in this pamphlet, at prices as low as coilsistent with the quality of our work. REPAIR OF INSTRUMENTS. We undertake the repairing of instruments of other makers as well as our own except for instruments of o F own and other first class makes, we hold ourselves responsible for our work only, as there are many inferior instruments which cannot be made perfect, and the firm that , repairs them is oftentimes censured for faults original with the constructor. To these, however, we will guarantee the best that can possibly be done. Our patrons will please specify which parts they wish to have repaired for it is customary in our shop, whenever there are no specifiec orders, to inake all the repairs necessary to put the instrulneilt in good working order. ASTRONOMICAL INSTRUMENTS. As is well known, these instruments are made to order only, each customer having ideab of his own, to which the coilstructor must adhere, to give satisfaction...
