Sextant Arc Maintenance
Clean old lubricant and grime from a sextant arc with GoJo hand cream. GoJo makes several types of cleaning solutions so it is important to use the one which is GRIT FREE and contains LANOLIN. Apply liberally then run the worm gear through the arc a few times. Wipe dry with a clean rag and follow up with a light oil applied a few drops at a time onto the worm gear as the micrometer drum is turned through the arc. Try Hoppe's #9 light oil for a gum free final touch.
