We ended up yesterday with both of our good sets of birding binoculars out of action. The first set were rendered useless a little over a year ago, and the lens fell out of the second pair 2 days ago. So it became a desperate situation for Ailsa.
A lot of searching with google and on youtube was no help – So I was forced to get inventive.
After a couple of hours both sets of binoculars are quite usable again (not factory perfect, but close enough to work with).
Have loaded what I did into the stray solutions tab of this site: https://tedhowardnz.wordpress.com/stray-solutions/
