We've updated one of our most popular products, using only the highest quality materials and construction to ensure that this practical, yet decorative instrument will withstand the test of time for many years to come.
Our 2nd generation Jeffersonian Rain Gauge features everything our customers have loved, but now includes a solid steel deck mount and foundation rod, a stainless steel float that will never chip or leak, and a re-engineered gauge pointer for more precise measurements.
Inspired by Thomas Jefferson's affinity for invention, this unique device uses a float and lever design to measure up to 7 inches of rain in 2/10-Inch increments. As rain fills the vial, the red ball rises, consequently causing the steel arm to climb up the scale.
The 2nd generation Jeffersonian Rain Gauge is crafted from solid brass, glass, aluminum, and stainless steel.
