April 2019 - from THE Peter Jackson

Hi Cameron

 I have a Chelsea barometer (pictured below) on my cruising yacht which wasn’t working when I bought the yacht 7 years ago.  It’s probably the original from when the yacht was built in the mid 1970’s.

 I’m getting ready to retire in the next year or two and go cruising.  I’d like to either get the barometer repaired, or replaced if not cost-effective or possible to repair.  

 I’m currently Wellington based but can’t find any local repairer.  I was given your details by a local jeweller who used to do repairs.

 I suspect there’s a delicate connection that’s broken.

 Can I courier it to you to have a look at and give me your opinion/quote.  I’m happy to pay an ‘analysis fee’.

 I look forward to hearing from you.Cheers, Peter

 

Hello Peter

I have received your barometer this morning and just had a quick look at it

Peter there is a section/ part missing ? , there is no adjustment attachment that adjusts the aneriod/pointer .

I have attached a photo of your barometer , notice to your left there is a brass screw that goes through the back plate , that should have a attachment that reaches over to the brass rod to the right of the picture.

I have also send a picture of a barometer that has the attachment even though its a different make it gives you a idea.

There is a small chance I can fit a new Fischer barometer as a replacement but it will take a lot of fiddling to get a good fit , in a nut shell not a very nice job but its possible .

Also there is no glass cover that provides protection to the unit hence some concerns how it will perform away at sea but in saying that the movement looks in good order , no signs of corrosion. 

 Hi Peter

I went over to a friend’s workshop this morning and took your barometer to see if he had anything sitting around for parts. We found one that nearly would have worked but it was also faulty. Pic attached of what it should look like.

Due to this I think the best course of action is to purchase a replacement that suits your needs moving forward.

A correct working barometer is a necessity at sea as its a back up to all the electronics .

Excellent, many thanks for your advice Cameron.

 I'm happy to accept your recommendation of the nautical brass barometer at $539.  Do you have an account so I can buy one by internet banking, and include delivery costs plus  the time you've spent assessing my old one - or do I need to order from the website?

 

Hi Cameron

 I acknowledge receipt of my new barometer, many thanks.  The packaging looked almost bomb proof.

I meant to say if my old one is of any use as spares you can keep it.  Let me know if so and I can send it back down to you.

I appreciate the way you do business.

Cheers, Peter

Hi Cameron
The weather-station arrived on Tuesday in excellent condition and is now proudly on the entrance wall.  It is not only a precision instrument but it looks great too.  I check the readings daily and I am sure it has made the weather improve too !  Appreciate your service and advice.
