The focusing adjustment will adjust the lenses for both sides together. But different people have different vision in the two eyes. To compensate for this, one of the two eyepieces can be rotated to focus that side individually. This rotating eyepiece (often called diopter).
First adjust by rotating the central adjustment, and then rotate the diopter to focus the other eye.

I have several walls that have wall board but were not skim coated. When removing old wall paper; I gouged the wall in many places. How do I repair these areas so that I can now paint the walls. Also, what...

You can use redi-mix joint compound to fill in spots that need repair. I would lightly sand areas to be patched then wipe with damp rag.Stir joint compound till it's is well mixed then apply to damaged areas with sheetrock joint knife. Use a knife of the size as needed. They come in widths of 4 1/2 to 14 inches. If it is a shallow gouge then you can just use joint compound to repair it. Apply a layer so it is flush with surrounding surfaces and let dry. When it is fully dry it will be solid to the touch and pure white.The joint compound shrinks as it dries so if you had to apply a very thick layer you will have to repeat until it is completely full when dry. If you have very deep cracks or holes you may need to use drywall paper tape to reinforce repaired areas.Just apply a thick enough layer of joint compound to fill crack then lay piece of tape on it and wipe it several times with the taping knife.Let this dry then go over it two or three more times to slightly overfill. Let fully dry then sand to smooth and feather edges to macth. There is nothing hard about doing this it can just be time consuming. Most people make the mistake of putting too much joint compound on and then they spend hours sanding it back off.
If your repair areas are small use spackling compound. Big advantage on small spots is it dries quickly and doesn't require recoating.
When you are happy with surface to be painted you can use a water sealer such as thompsons water seal which works well but takes too long.I would recommend that you damp sponge walls and use 2 coats of interior latex primer. Let dry fully between coats then finish with two coats of semi-gloss interior latex. Hope this helps you.Thank you.

I just got an old set of kalimar Model K7070 Binoculars ( 7X-15X35)from my father. They seem to have some type of water drop marks in the left lens. Are these worth trying to repair. I do not know what he...

The water drop marks you are seeing may be seperation of the lens coating. Most binoculars after WW2 have some form of anti-relective coating on the lens. This is applied to the glass surfaces in varying degress by various manufacturers. Its intended purpose is to reduce the amount of light that is reflected off the glass so that the image you see is brighter. Your windows at home that aren't covered actually don;t allow all of the light to come through!
What they all have in common is that the coating is applied onto the glass. Over time like anything that is stuck on or painted it can begin to peel off.
You could try asking a repair place if they caqn replace the lens but most likely they would need to change both so that they have the same coating. The binoculars are worth more for sentimental value than the cost of repair as a similar replacement set would cost as much. Zoom binoculars are not known for their optical quality. Often this 'watermark' effect doesn not interfere with the view. If your sentiments say fix them regardless do so. If not hold onto them as a keep sake.

My binoculars need some maintenance, and it looks like the eyepiece coating is wearing off. Where can I send them for repair, and do they come with a lifetime guarantee?

Bausch & Lomb binoculars did carry a Limited Life Time Warranty. I quote the first paragraph of the enclosed warranty card. The rest of the card just mentions the address to send them. The card is old and always good to check for the current address. "Your Bushnell or Bausch & Lomb binocular, riflescope, or telescope is unquestionably warranted to be free of defect in material and workmanship for the lifetime of the original owner." Coating wearing off is not considered a warranty repair as coatings can come off over time. Rubbing too hard often or not blowing off debris before cleaning can do this. Using cleaners not made for coated lenses also can. The Bausch & Lomb Discoverer was made by Bushnell. They have owned B & L's binoculars business since the mid seventies. Bushnell still make the discoverer line under the Bushnell brand name. Contact Bushnell in your country for service.

My Chinon 10x25R binoculars have the same problem.

Simple use soft lint free cloth like old drying up cloth, you need about half a cup of methalayted spirits,can get this from any hardware store.
poke finger into cloth dip into meths proceed to rub sticky coating off binoculars. you will need to keep changing to a new peace of the cloth as soon as it gets coated with the sticky black stuff off binoculars.
keep dipping into meths eventually after say 6 rubs in a particular area you will see and feel a nice hard black plastic, continue all over effected area then finish off with any window cleaner polish until cloth remains clean.STICKY COATING IS NOW GONE IT WAS INFACT A COATING PUT ON THE BINOCULARS TO MAKE THEM NONE SLIP. job done. regards GER8
