You can check for a worn or defective pivot by bringing a magnetic object such as a small magnet or a screwdriver close enough to the compass to deflect it about five or ten degrees. Deviation is the difference between Compass North and Magnetic North.Good seamanship recommends that all vessels should have a deviation table for the magnetic compass.
