This unique product
was only ever available from
Oswald The Runemaker. It was an advanced dowsing or "pendling" tool for use in divination or discovery.
The design was developed in co-operation with my good friend and colleague Mark
Porter of Casa Grande, AZ.
It was an octahedral pendulum about 3in x 2in (100 x 50 mm). It
crafted from solid wood and the original tree bark often retained on the central vertices. The faces of the pendulum
bore the eight runes most appropriate for sending and receiving. The top was fitted with a little metal ring and a 10
inch length of chain terminating in a small wooden fob decorated with the Oswald bindrune logo. A 12-page
introductory booklet was supplied as a pdf file on mini-CD with the pendulum. The 8 runes were empowered by runic ritual to perform the
Beware of imitations! You may find other versions of the runic pendulum
on the www, but the original Oswald-Porter pendulum is the only one with the correct 8 runes that
were empowered by runic ritual.
The upper surfaces bear the four sending runes
(I have tampered with the list to prevent copying):
Ansuz, the Messenger Rune
Ingwaz, the Rune of Harmony
Ihwaz, the Rune of Defense
Ehwaz, the Rune of Momentum
And the lower surfaces bear the four receiving runes
((I have tampered with this list too!):
Raido, the Travellers Rune
Berkanan, the Rune of Growth
Dagaz, the Rune of Transformation
Sowilo, the Rune of Revelation
The pendulum can be used to locate objects, or for giving yes
and no answers to questions. It may also help to identify an illness or highlight a dietary
deficiency. A pendulum held over a map or sketch may find the position of a person, building or object.
Before use, the pendulum will have to be "set up" and attuned to your
psyche, so I have included the 12 page booklet on Mini-CD giving advice on this procedure, together with some basic instruction on
Ley lines can also be dowsed by pendulum. These are lines of energy
which criss-cross the surface of the earth. Ancient religious sites and many churches that are built on older sacred
sites are situated on Ley lines. They can be positive or negative in nature. Some are large and powerful while others
are smaller and weaker.
Living or working on a negative line can have an adverse effect on
some people who feel ill or depressed as a result. If you know where the Ley line is, you can move your living or
working location away to one side of the line. Some times a few yards is sufficient, but I have heard of victims
actually moving to another house!
There is an excellent introduction to pendulum dowsing at:

article by an ex-army engineer officer who used the system for locating unexploded landmines in military service.
(Genuine purchasers please note: in order to protect the pendulum
design from unauthorized copying I have included a couple of deliberate mistakes by editing the pictures and
changing the description. Pendulums made to
the above specifications will be unlikely to produce accurate results.)
