    Hello Zvi and thanks for your reply. I am sure the fluid has evaporated and would greatly appreciate the drawings and instruction.
     
    Thanks for all info

    Hello Allan,
    If it turns out that the liquid had evaporated from the bubble chamber over the years, I have a PDF of drawings and instructions by Mr.Bartlett from Austraia on how to remedy this. I wish I had this file when I fixed the bubble on my MkIX...
    Let me know.

    Hi, Does anyone have any info on how to repair/maintain and then use a 1942 MK IX A Bubble Sextant, I'd like to learn Astro and take some sights on the land.  Alternatively can you point me to any useful sites/links, organisations. The one I've just aquired seems to 'work', most controls move, some a little stiff though. The clock work mechanism runs down over 2 Mins. However I've no bubble. Thanks for any help.
