    Subject: Bubble Sextant Mark IX A.M., Indent No. C6B-312

    Yesterday I opened up (probably for the first time since abt 1945 )  my bubble sextant which I bought many years ago. and much to my surprise, it seems to work at least for sunsights.
    I found the manual for it and the thread about it on this list, but would like to do whatever maintenance/servicing is needed after 50 + years.
    I guess the most vulnerable critical component is the bubble diaphram - can SKS tell me how I get to it, what precautions are necessary and where I can get a spare/replacement?
    Can anyone help me please?
    TIA
    From Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia
