Belfort Universal Weighing Raingage model 5-780. Classic weather instrument that uses no batteries or power to operate. It has a wind up clock driven drum that records rain amount by weighing the water that fills a bucket in side on top of the mechanism. @ 35" tall and 14" diameter.

Used image of chart to create one @ correct size for demo and shown in picture with pen indicating 1" rain when the correct weight for 1" rain is in bucket. It is not calibrated fully but could be with some further tweeking.

Does not come with ink, charts or calibration but clock runs and with a chart, ink and if calibrated would work.
