My aunt has an old compass that I’d like to clean. There’s a lot of dirt inside. The glass face won’t come off - won’t even move - and I’m guessing that it’s glued on. So, how can I unglue it? And once I’ve removed the glass and cleaned the compass, what glue do I use to glue it back on?
There’s also a table with some dried-on gunk on it. Neither water nor wax have helped. It comes off if I scratch it vigorously with my fingernail. Detail showing veneer beneath. How do I clean it? There’s also a mark to the bottom left: any thoughts on that? Further, elsewhere the table has suffered from sunlight - do I simply keep polishing those areas until they come back?
