    Re: sextant for use on land

    James, Home Depot usually stocks Xylene in pint cans. The stock varies but if
    yours doesn't have it hidden someplace, try any other paint shop or auto
    body/paint supply. I think I paid $4? for a pint last year, and know it came
    from a Home Depot.

    I'd never seen or heard of a "Bristol Spline Wrench" until this post and I'm
    familiar with a number of odd tools. I guess there's always one more. The
    Bristol Wrench Company (holders of the patent<G>) are online and their
    explanation of the special properties of the design makes sense, but I suspect
    proper metallurgy and design allow a conventional Allen (hex) stud to replace
    it.

    Color me cynical but I'd swear the real purpose of that B.S.W. fitting is a
    tamper-proofing design, with no practical purpose for the individual owner. A
    way to keep "the other" aviation mechanics from refilling the bubble with
    incorrect fluids, and damaging the sextants, perhaps.
