    Default Deckel FP1 Oil Level Sight Glass

    Hi everyone. I am cleaning up and changing the oil on my FP1, getting it ready for sale. The oil level glass is dark and pretty much useless. I was going to replace it with a Kipp K0446.2420. The original oil level glass installed on a tapered surface. The Kipp replacements look like they are installed on flat surface. Are there different versions of oil level sight glass for the FP1?

    I took the cover off the side and found a metal housing over the sight gauge. There are some tool marks on the metal housing, looks like some gorilla was trying to remove the sight glass.

    Your machine may have been modified, either to make the sight glass more visible or to make use of a non-standard one.

    The standard Deckel sight glasses are 20mm diameter and can either be glued in place or pressed in with an o-ring seal. Some more information is here:

    and here:

    [EDIT] I just saw that Franz Singer has these for sale:
