Re: Bad compass?
The floating part of the compass is floating free and smooth? Are you holding the compass upright? That looks like a wall mounted compass, is that how you are mounting it and holding it?
I have found that a magnetic screwdriver can magnetize a mounting or case screw? You might try removing some screws. And, as a way outside thought, could there be a shipping magnet attached to keep the float from getting damaged?
