    Japanese Navy Type 2 bubble sextant
    From: Ronald van Riet
    Date: 2007 Dec 20, 23:28 -0800

    hi all,
    
    I just got me a beautiful WWII era Japanese Navy Type 2 bubble sextant
    and would like to have a go at getting it back in working order.
    
    The big knob to set the altitude runs very smoothly and the overall
    look of the thing is pretty good
    
    One obvious problem is the corrosion in the battery compartment, but
    even more important is the fact that I have no bubble.
    
    Would anyone have instructions on how to fix this type of sextant or
    have any documentation on this sextant whatsoever (even in Japanese,
    pictures could say a lot even if I couldn't understand the text)?
    
    thanks
    
    Ronald
