They just called and I have to go in to work early, so I'll be back in a few hours. If you pay attention to the words in my clues (and the one implied in my HUGE clue) you should find it with no problem.

Happy searching!

Does it have anything to do with measuring the force of gravity?

You're getting warmer Buck.

Maybe you should all go on a field trip to try to find one of these.

You got it! It is an Earth Inductor (also called Delzenne's Circle). It measures the magnitude and direction of the Earth's magnetic field. This one was from the 1800s.

Give us a good one Buck!
