Question about Optics
I have a pair of small bushnell binoculars I have had for several years. They have double hinges, are compact and very handy.
I tried to use them recently and the right hinge is completely without tension. The right side just flops around.
When I tried to hold the right side in place, I could not get the images to merge. I am afraid the binoculars have fallen and not only is the hinge loose, but the two sides are no longer in alignment.
How hard is this to repair? Is it expensive to have done?
I don't think these were expensive and don't want to go overboard, but if there is a simply mechnical fix, I would do it. The optics, etc. are not damaged.
Numbers on the inside look like "13-2014 MW 001 AG" They were made in China.
Any schematics available?
Bushnells are inexpensive binoculars. A repair would cost more than a new one. If they are out of alignment to have them collimated would take time and that translates to expense. Its not something that can be done at home without a collimator. New ones similar to yours can be found online for between twenty to forty US dollars. Binoculars today can be bought much cheaper than a few years ago. If you are happy with the use you have had from your Bushnells an update won't break the bank.
