    This is very surprising:
    The sextant in the first link is definitely a Soviet-made SNO-T.
    Complete with its accessories and the ugly grey box, yellow inside.
    But the certificate says "Sewell".
    What do Sewel (and/or Cassens-Plath!) have to do with a SNO-T ??
    
    Alex.

    Graham,
    
    This looks to be the same sextant as a USSR SNO-T.  Best luck for parts would 
    be on E-bay. Look for a complete horizon mirror with frame. Read up on the 
    Bill Morris blog for this particular sextant. There is a trick to the 
    collared adjustment nuts to prevent stripping and damage.
