Re: Anybody know how to fill a compass and not have a bubble?
Yep there is a filling point, usually on the under side, but sometimes on the side of the bowl. I would suggest you use the correct oil/alchol to fill it. Bay oil (sp?) is used sometimes. I have used a 10ml syringe to fill mine in the past.
Before you use it, I would check it against a reliable hand held compass to see how accurate it is against known reference points and transits. Otherwise, if its going to be your main steering compass get a compass adjuster in to work his magic.
Best of luck.
