    > Did it come with "tools" and spare mirror - "new" ones generally do
    
    Yes. 
    
    
    > Which tools were included (picture would be informative)
    
    There are all the tools that have came with th sextant. Nothing missing
    
    
    >Try moving the index arc - sole of the unused SNO-Ts have grease set
    up to the point where the arc can't be released.
    
    I don't quite understand what do you mean, but the index arm "jams" around 60 degrees, before you move it. 
    
    
    > Take a look at the lens in the low power telescope to see if there is
    any "crazing" in the optics - most will show some - it is not a big
    deal in terms of optical quality and it can be (reasonably) easily
    fixed.
    
    I don't know what do you mean here. Both the optics looks very fine both the outlook and the lenses. 
    
    
    > Does it have a vernier scale on the micrometer - very few did - its
    not a big deal if it does not, but it is a cool feature to have.
    
    No, but there is a magnifier glass to help the reading
