Thread: Ocular lens rubber

  1. #1

    Ocular lens rubber

    I lost the ocular lens rubber cover from my Meopta so those nice people at Meopta sent me a couple spare.

    What I am not sure about is what adhesive to use, not Copydex nor an epoxy but something inbetween.
    Rubber onto a painted steel surface.

    Any one know what to use?

    I'd use silicone myself.

    Schmidt & Bender very kindly sent me a couple for my scope & the glue they recommend is an epoxy resin - Some unrecognisable german stuff so mine will be going on with Araldite.

    Silicon does not sound too silly, it may well work well.
    Meopta said Loctite but not which one.
    I'll have to see what silicon I have, I had some windscreen seal which would do well.
    Also got some araldite and Z-Poxy 30.

    Jack, did they mean super glue? That should secure the rubber to the metal nicely, and the thin stuff is better than gooey silicon or epoxy to get a good finish.
