Compass

Post by Geoff Holland » Mon May 25, 2015 3:25 pm

My Swift's compass has drained all it's liquid out and the sphere has lost it's clarity. It is quite a big unit with the sphere about 95mm diameter and the cut out in the bulkhead is about 123mm. It is a Contest Class B - No 346 SN.
Has anyone got one spare or any ideas?

Hi Geoff, there is currently a thread about refilling compasses on the PBO forum...

Thanks for the reply Colin - however, the sphere is cloudy and crazed being about 32 years old and I don't know where the leak is. I may just have to fork out the £130 odd for a new unit.
