    Re: Plath kriegsmarine sextant servicing
    From: Fred Hebard

    Usually, the adilade is held by a single screw or nut that fastens
    through the back of the adilade pivot.  The ones I've seen (which
    does not  include a Plath)  are on a highly tapered bearing, metal to
    metal.  It might be better not to mess with it.
