    Re: Fluids for Bubble Sextants and Sealing Methods
    From: Robert Swartz

    When I restore Link A-12 bubble sextants, I follow the manufacturer's specifications and use xylene. The bubble chambers must be clean internally and the white lead oxidation around the seals should be scraped off. Then you can paint a ring of clear shellac to insure seal. Also be sure to seal the filler plug bristol screw after tightening. Don' forget to insert the ball bearing in the filler port.
