HARD TO FIND
THOMAS WALKER TRIDENT MECHANICAL SHIP'S LOG
One of Walker's Rarest and Largest Logs
Trident mechanical logs are one of the rarest and possibly the largest of all of Thomas
Walker's distance measuring apparatus and are infrequently seen on the market. Consequently they are very hard to find and
should be a part of any serious collection.
Presented is a Walker Trident Ship's
Log. Thomas Walker & Son, Ltd of Birmingham, England name is synonymous with
patent logs. This is not the electric version of the same name which was introduced in 1902, but is the
earlier strictly mechanical version which is rarely seen. The log is comes with the very large rotator, and is mounted
on a Mahogany display stand. It was developed around 1900 by Thomas Ferdinand Walker for larger size
ships. It is immense in size compared to other logs, and is arguably the heaviest and largest log the prolific
Walker firm offered.
It features a self contained instrument head with a distance
measuring calculator which was mounted on the vessel's taffrail. The instrument section has a white porcelain face,
and three analog counters with black Arabic numbers for distance run. A very large rotator or fish is trailed
in the water behind the ship and its rotation is transmitted to the counter by means of a line (not included).There is no
reason to think it is not in working condition. As far as we can determine this model is Walker's largest log.
CONDITION: The instrument head and spinner is in remarkably good
condition considering their years if service at sea. The brass deck shoe, in which the instrument head mounts, is present..
The display stand is a new addition. In a move from Jupiter to Palm City, the log was dropped and the glass was broken.
