    Re: Sextant Mirror Resilvering?

    I recommend the Freiberger's factory for replacement of
    the mirror and all other repairs of a Freiberger
    sextant. I visited them few years ago, with my SNO-T
    sextant; (which they call a Freiberger clone) they were friendly and
    co-operative. They have a web site with all coordinates,
    and I recommend just to call them.
    I also know a guy in Holland who apparently re-silvers mirrors,
    (and can give you his phone number) but why re-silver if you
    can get a new mirror from Freiberger?
