Hey everyone. I have a trick for finding leaks in a liquid compass. My compass had an air bubble in it, so I assumed it had a leak. I couldn’t find the leak, though, so I went on the internet and found this trick.
First, buy some fluid from your compass’ manufacturer, and sit the compass and the bottle of fluid in the refrigerator overnight. The next day, open your compass and fill it completely. Securely close the compass, then wipe off the condensation and sit it on a paper towel in a warm room for a couple of days.
After a few days, you should find the leak! Then all you have to do is change the broken component.
I think this will only work if you get the exact same fluid your compass already has in it. It’s not good to mix different fluids, anyway, because that can damage the compass
