Like stick barometers these use a tube of mercury which has a U bend. A glass weight rests on top of the mercury with a fine thread acting on a pulley or wheel, attached to the pulley is a hand which indicates on a dial the rise and fall of barometric pressure. This type of barometer is often called a “Banjo” Barometer.
