Good evening folks,
I have a 1970's vintage M. Low USN MKIII MOD-0 Sextant and I'm seeking your talents for an issue I have.
The unit is rigged for lighting of the arc and the micrometer, however, the handle is moulded plastic and doesn't come apart for repair of the electrical circuit / battery compartment. Does anyone have an old manual or diagram for the sextant? Does anyone have a unit and can discuss the issues with it?
I'd appreciate any comments or ideas.
