WTF is this?
on 19 September 2013
I ordered 10 compasses for an Air Training Corps Squadron, my reason for going cheap being that it's not going to be a big deal when (not if) Bloggsy drops it, loses it or leaves it next to a radio transmitter and demagnetises it. My lesson for the day is that sometimes you really do get what you pay for.
Firstly, the product delivered isn't what's shown in the picture. There's no direction arrow, or index line, making it impossible to get an accurate bearing. This, however is small potatoes compared to the very simple fact that THE DIAL DOESN'T MOVE FREELY.
I shall be contacting the suppliers first thing tomorrow, demanding that they take these unmitigated pieces of dog toffee off my hands and give me a full refund.
