Does it have a switch to change it so it can be used for daylight saving time?
When I was kid growing up on a farm I played with sundials quite a bit. Managed to buy some and made some from plans. There was no TV or telephone so I had to make my own entertainment. It's remarkable at how accurate these things are at certain times of the year. I also got very good at telling time by mark I eyeball too.

I got pretty good at it by the middle of summer as well, looking at animals to estimate the weight was good as well.
I read a book by Gary Paulson (Paulsen?) about a sled dog he had who had "scale eyes", the dog would not be happy if he saw that what was being loaded on the sled was a very heavy load. Bringing home the wood stove was one such trip.
best wishes

Come quickly, Lord Jesus
