    Default Freiberger Drum Sextant

    Continuing with my spending on the great EBlag (subject to approval from the Boss of course ) I am now the proud owner of a 1975 Freiberger Drum Sextant! Only problem is that I have the Owners Manual/Guide in French and German only (courtesy of the web). Don't suppose anyone has an old English version or could scan and email? I have visited the Freiberger website but they don't appear to provide old manuals as far as I can see.

    I have a Freiberger 'Yacht' sextant with a 'Description-Adjustment-Operation' booklet in English.

    You are welcome to a photocopy of it if you pm me with your email address.

    I am very proud of my linguistic abilities...............I can ask for a beer, food and somewhere to lay my head pretty much anywhere in the world. One of the benefits of being an expat is I regularly encounter Spanglish in its many forms and no matter how linguistically challenged the group may be the meaning is generally understood ). Unfortunately, being able to get by in a drunken bar crawl anywhere in the world does me no good when trying to decipher a manual (bearing in mind as a red-blooded male I make it a point to avoid reading instructions until absolutely necessary!)

    Dear Parsifal, Might I trouble you for a copy of your 'Description-Adjustment-Operation' booklet in English for Freiberger 'Yacht' sextant? I recently purchased a used one but I am missing the manual.
    Thanks in advance

    Hi, Maybe it is far too late, but I only came across this website today while looking for the same sextant because I own one, too now and have original instruction manuals, one in German and one in English. I'd be happy to scan the English one for you and email it to you. Just drop me a note. rengis2001atyahoo.co.uk
