Re: Astra IIIB Sextant + Sight Reduction Tables

FYI, one can buy the same rubber "feet" for the base of the storage box at most Home Depot or Lowes stores for very little cost.

FWIW...

Re: Astra IIIB Sextant + Sight Reduction Tables

Hay, Sorry to every one who has PMed me and showed interest, Family issues came up and I haven't been on here for the past 2 weeks. I have received a lot of interest and have PMed back those in the order I received them. I will be sure to close out this thread as soon as it sells. Thanks -Frank

Re: Astra IIIB Sextant + Sight Reduction Tables

If any one is still interested I just listed it for sale on ebay for convenience as I am tired of all of the back and forth PMs and flakes (admittedly some of that was my fault; sorry) I upped the price to "buy it now" $400 + actual shipping costs to compensate for ebays commission https://www.ebay.com/itm/26346088773...84.m1558.l2649

Thanks
-Frank
