Anyone remember C.W.Jamer of Manorville New York? His ads used to be in the back section of Popular Science magazine of the early 1940's. He sold lens kits for 2.95 and I made my first scope from these parts. Wish I had a picture of this contraption made of paper tubes whick had a tin can mount hung on a clothes line post.
