    Hello,
    I've looked but seems there isn't a specific section for these instruments.

    I'm looking for suggestions. I have a Bourdon & Richard Barometer which I have cleand and tested with a plastic bag and doing a pression inside.
    The rack when the pressure raise is moving, but seems to need a very high pressure to work while if touching gently the bellow it work smoothly. Anyway put to the wall, rain - no rain or nice weather does not seem to move. :(

    Thanks and regards

    Maybe there is a small hole in the bellow? There seems to be some corrosion visible in the first picture.

    I suppose there is no section for barometers because they are neither clocks nor watches.

    Uhralt's suggestion is a good one. There are also a number of websites devoted to barometers where you might get more help.
