I'm trying to figure out how to set the magnetic declination. I think it can be set.

The ring that has the glass in it over the compass box has machined ridges like on a quarter so that it appears it can be turned.

The needle lifter is in a holder which has two horizontal screws.

Maybe I loosen the screws then turn the ring?

Right now it's set to zero.
