    You emailed me thru Navlist, and I don’t have your email to answer off line. We don’t have your part but a good source for any parts is Robert E. White Instruments, Boston area (you can google).

    Good day,

    I have a 1970's sextant (Simex Mariner- made by Tamaya) that has a broken part and I would like to see if you have a replacement.  The tightening knob post which holds the telescope ring arm to the sextant frame has sheared off.  Now I cannot mount my telescopes or even the ring.  It is a complex bit of engineering with differing threads, and set screws which prevent jury-rigging a fastener (not that I would desire to do so).  I can add an image to illustrate.  If you have such a part, please let me know and we can make a deal.

    Thank you,

    Mark Miller
