Just found on eBay the following item: "Most Sinar users are depressed by the dried*level bubbles, it is very hard (over one month order period)*and expensive (over USD50 for one bubble)*to order original accessories from Sinar agent. Here for sale is OEM level bubbles for Sinar P2/P/X/F2/F1 cameras, which are sold only*at*USD49.95 for THREE bubbles."
Dried level bubbels are very easy to repair.

Good morning, Bertil;
Thank you for the information. I admit that a couple of my SINAR standards do suffer from the "excessively large bubble" syndrome in their levels.

Good luck with the operation!
