    Re: Soviet Sextants!

    I do most of my own work on my sextants. On rare occasions I have dealt with
    Robert White in Boston, mostly for parts. I found them to be very good. I
    just sent the horizon shade assembly back to Cassens & Plath in Bremerhaven
    to have a shade glass replaced. It was cheaper to send it back rather then
    have it repaired here in the States. There is Clausen Instrument Company in
    North Carolina; they are the importer of Freiberger Sextants and I have
    purchased parts from them for my Freiberger. They have a repair shop and
    your sextant is a copy of the Freiberger I think. You might try them. A
    member of this list, Joel Jacobs is a very experienced person when it comes
    to your brand of sextants but unfortunately I have had no dealings with him
    yet, so I can make no comment about him other then to point out his
    impeccable credentials.
