    Spare parts for Mark IX sextant
    From: Dean Tetley
    Date: 2020 Jul 12, 00:01 -0700

    I have been given a Mark IX sextant that is in pieces. I have slowly put it back together, only to find 3 pieces are missing. I'm hoping someone may have a Mark IX that is being used for spare parts. 

    Using Bill Morris's manual, page 94 figure 59 I can see that the bracket and screws that hold the shot counter and clearing pawl are missing. Additionally what looks like a smaller pawl and small spring pushing on that pawl (not the blank shade spring)are also missing. See the photos of my sextant and the image from Bill Morris's manual below.
