I recently purchased a pair of vintage (1940) pair of Bauch and Lomb Navy BU Ship 7x50 binoculars. Does anyone have any suggestions as to a good place to have them sent for a good cleaning and tweaking? Any information supplied would be greatly appreciated.

I have seen postings by a Cory Suddarth of Suddarth Optical Repair on the Yahoo BinoAstronomy group. Mr. Suddarth used to be in charge of binocualr reparis at Orion. Before that he did optical maintainance and repair for the US Navy. You can find him by doing a Google serach or look him up in the Yahoo binocularAstronomy group archiev. He goes by "Binofixer" on that forum.
