Jer Posted March 18 Report Share Posted March 18 Folks: I don't know if anyone else has had this problem, but the mounting ears broke off of the compass housing. I believe it is made of Bakelite, and the material seems a bit crumbly after 40+ years. I have a good solution which involves a 3D printed adapter which I made. tapping a couple of pre-existing holes in the housing, screwing it on, and re-mounting the compass with original hardware. Here are a couple of photos: 1) the compass with broken ears. 2) top and bottom views of the adapter. 3) the adapter attached, and 4) the adapted compass re-installed. If there is anyone else in this situation, please advise and I will post the .stl file of the adapter and write detailed instructions to guide someone through the whole process. I am also just willing to send an adapter to anyone who needs it. Jer 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
