According to the online translators Nivellator in German translates as Level Indicator ( in English).

I think 'Nivellator' is a trade mark, or at least an invented word -not uncommon in German. The title of the patent document translates as 'Level (surveyors) and measuring device'. Knowing this I suspect it belonged to my wife's grandfather, who was a sewage works foreman in the 1920's, no doubt with an interest in the flow of fluid through pipes, probably without the assistance of pumps in his home location.

I fail to see how that is going to test a parachute ! As for an Ebay or Instagram post as a means of clarifying anything , please get a grip. It is quite simply a level . I am reasonably clued up re parachutes but no expert. I'm third generation in my family to have strapped one on many times. I've never used one , my Grandad would enter an incipient spin in his grave if I were to abandon a serviceable aircraft.

Further to my last post , the standard method of testing parachutes is that daft youth that's always mooching around in the hangar.
