I recently found a Precision Aviation PAI-700 vertical card compass in my shed, but it’s sadly broken! I don’t want to use it in a plane but would like to fix it so it can at least work. It would be a nice talking-piece.

I took it apart and found that the indicator itself has snapped off of the shaft which is internally housed in this silver metal bearing presumably.

Does anyone know if you can get spare parts/know the name of it or something that could work as at least a bodge fix!

  • $\begingroup$ I wonder if the manufacture would want the possible liability of providing a part for an instrument disassembled by an unauthorized repair station. Nikita might have to attempt to figure out the repair on his own. $\endgroup$ – Mike Brass Jun 10 '20 at 10:16
