Fun Fact:

Did you know that Wm. Young holds a patent for the shifting Base of a transit?  Young was granted the patent on July 13, 1858 and  Alfred Young thought this patent was important enough that he bought the patent rights from the Young Estate.  Since this style shifting base became the accepted style it makes you wonder if any of the other makers of the time actually paid royalties for using this style shifting base on their instruments?
