    It so happens I'm missing the base for my Astro compass.  I'm making do
    with a black plastic plumbing fitting from the local hardware store, but I
    would like to buy a trim aluminum base.  Even if it doesn't fit in the
    wooden box, it should allow the instrument to sit better on my plane table.
    
    I suppose I should fit the base to my car, but all the land here is
    divided by the roads into rectangles one mile wide (80 chains E-W) by two
    miles tall (160 miles N-S) so it seems a bit pointless.
