    Re: Resilvering of sextant mirrors:Australia
    From: Steven Grobler

    I wanted to do the same for my RAF bubble sextant, but came to the
    conclusion that it was too expensive and too hard to find a suitable
    contact. There is a do-it-yourself guide on the net, mainly for people
    that build home telescopes I think, but it required a lot of effort and
    sounded quite dangerous too!.
    What I did was to go into my local glass shop (Perth) and get the guy to
    cut me a new mirror at a cost of $5.
    That doesn't answer your question, I know, but it might be a way out for
    you too.
