Default Barographs?

I was mainly interested in the mechanical, smoke type. Was not interested in one for competition but mainly to use for historical interests.
I’m not a collector necessarily in aviation items but I do have two aviation sextants (A-10) and a drift meter. Although I don’t shoot stars, the sun and the moon from the cockpit, I have spent a fair amount of time shooting the sun in my backyard.
Wanting a workable barograph is in line with these interests.

The Replogle is a mechanical, wind-up barograph that can use smoked foil, but the pressure
sensitive chart paper was much easier to use. I did use smoked foil a few times on a ???
barograph, but it was messy to smoke the foil, and misting some lacquer on it after the flight
was tricky - so easy to smudge the smoke on the foil and lose the trace. So, smoked foil to GPS
traces - I prefer the GPS traces for flying, but the Replogle is prominent on my "shelf museum".

Thanks Eric, Will see if I can find one of those. Having a manufacturer name will help.

Winter is another manufacturer that made mechanical, windup barograph. They were bigger,
heavier, and more expensive, as I recall.

Hi Jim,

We're having a club Maintenance Day tomorrow, so we'll be going through the shed and the shop. I'm pretty sure we have at least one of each of the common models. I can't believe our BOD would want to hang on to them at this point.

Where are you located?

.... but it was messy to smoke the foil

And I bet you it was/is pretty unhealthy to do so as well! I hope you did that in the confines of you own home with no impressionable youngsters around. ;-)

Smoking generally occurred in the back of my trailer, which was probably a bit unhealthy, what
with all the black smoke particles floating around. Pretty sure coming out of the trailer
hacking and coughing made any impressionables think they'd stick to skateboards :^)

I've two old Peravia barographs - with a couple rolls of paper. These were very elegant mechanisms that punched a tiny perforation in a continuous roll of waxed paper every 6 seconds. The drums marked the paper for time so that it was possible with a Peravia to record both altitude and the exact time of the altitude. The paper became quite scarce but it could be made out of household wax paper. Free to a good home. You pay for shipping.

I need some nick-nacks for my soaring wall. I would love to have at least one barograph with a roll of paper.
give me you e-mail and or phone and we can make a deal?
