    Freiberger box trivia
    From: Axel Vis

    Dear navigators,
    
    I have recently completely spoiled myself (one has to now and again) and
    gave myself a Freiberger as a pressy.
    
    In the left top corner of the box is a solid cylindrical shape that has
    a corresponding square block glued to the lid. I can only think of a
    sort of support for the lid protecting the moveable mirror but the same
    effect can be achieved by more efficient means. Anyone any ideas?
    Then there is also a wooden block glued in the box next to the sextant
    that has a stud with a screw that appears to be the same as the screw
    that holds the telecope. Is this just a reserve screw or has something
    been fixed by the screw?
    
    Thanks,
    
    Axel
