    Oceanic old style compass mount

    Hi,

    I was looking for a bungee mount for my old style Oceanic compass, like this one:



    After searching on the internet for days, I nearly gave up, but to my surprise I finally found! How come that this is so hard to find? I see this compass type everywhere.

    Because nobody wants to pay 25 for a lump of plastic and some bungee cord? We just made our own.

    But if people will pay 25 for a 3d printed lump of plastic, there's a sideline for you to branch into (Rob does have a 3d printer, doesn't he?)
    The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

    There are a couple of different diameters of compass (found this when my bungee mounted one got squashed in transit and had to go through a couple of consoles before I found one that fit the bungee mount)

    I suspect that's what the OP is doing.

    Are you suggesting that the OP might have created an account and made a 1st post about how they'd "found" a product just to drive traffic to their selling site? That never happens does it?
