Bob for a plumb line. The bob is shaped like a spearhead. It has a hole (5 mm in diameter) half way down its length. There is a wooden handle which screws down onto a 15 mm extension on top of the bob. This is designed to take the string which passes through the wooden handle in order to make a full useable plumb line.
