No problem at all. I'll do it this weekend. I can tell you off the top of my head though as I sit at my desk in the office with my PSK sealed up tight and no camera. This is my TrueNord model...

and this is the one in my knife...

Both are shown with a coin for size reference.

Check out 3 Rivers Archery, they have 3 small compasses (10, 14, 18mm). Pretty cheap too.


I have some in my kits and they work great!

Besides a regular compass that I carry in my shoulder pack I have a litlle pin on compass that I pin it on the flap of my shirt and that way I dont have to use any hands, I just have to look down. It is very accurate and cost me only about $1.97 in Wall Mart. I also have a combination wistle, thermometer, compass and magnifiying glass that I also but in Wall Mart for about $3.00

I have both a model 001141 and a model 001147 compass.
The model 001141 is about half empty of oil and has a STRONG oil smell
to it(almost like gun oil), and has leaked into my bag.
The model 001147 has a large bubble in it.
The model 001141 does not work at all and the model 001147 works sometimes.
I have had these less than a year and would like some help with this problem.

I had bought two Tru-Nords already so I gave the Marbles replacement to my father. So far so good. I think that the oil is some sort of mineral oil. I took the old broken one and drilled a 1/16" hole in the casing to see if it would work as a dry compass. It didn't. <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
