    Glasgow Binocular Repair

    I had sent away my 30 plus year old pair of Carl Zeiss 7x50 bins to this company after calling Zeiss optics themselves. Zeiss could not service them as they were an old model and did not have the tools to do them. They recommended Glasgow Binocular Repair because they bought all the old tooling off Zeiss.
    So off they were sent after a phone call to them, a couple of weeks later a lady rang me up to say they had received them and they were in the 'system' to be looked at. After taking payment details and address to courier them back to me she said that they will be back with me in 2-3 weeks, fine I said. Is there a chance I could get them back quicker 'cause they are my main stalking bins and are using a sub at the mo.

    I will see what i can do , she said.

    This was last thursday and yesterday they said they will be with me in the morning via courier. Like they said they turned up this morning!!!!

    Have had a look through them and they are now crystal clear like new.


    The total cost of..
    Service to include.
    clean
    re-alinge
    postage back....

    55.

    I can highly recommend this company if you have some older bins that are no longer in factory warranty.

    Just got back my two sets of 8x30 Hensoldts from Glasgow Binocular Repair. One set fogged up one tube, the other I had bought second hand with double vision. They removed the laser protection and the scale reticule, cleaned, resealed, nitrogen purged and adjusted them. Binos are now much better than they ever were. Good service at a good price. I had the work quoted in one London and 2 German companies none where as keen as Glasgow.

    Just echoing what others have found. Used these guys for several years - faultless and ( in a positive way ) good old fashioned service.

    Worth calling in if you are close by - take a bit of finding ( once you are in the building ) - yards of polished old lino corridors and no body about. Very Harry Palmer!

    But once there, its worth it. Highly recommend.

    London Camera Exchange use the same company too, or at least the Salisbury branch do or did when they took mine in for repair.

    Update, the fella that was recommended by Glasgow bino repairs name of Paul***** in 0121 area has just started on the third of the three scopes I sent to him, he sounds like a real pro in the game, down to earth too! the reports are so far very very good & I can't wait to get them back, especially my Mil-Dot 10 power. When all are back home I will let you know the full outcome & let anyone have Paul's full details for anyone who needs a scope doctor.

    Hi Jonathan

    I recentlt attended a BVSCS evening who had invited along a guest speaker from Swarovski..

    Fantastic guy and a great evening..

    Due to good old EU regulations we were told that in order to give a warranty, twenty percent of parts and tooling etc had to be retained to conform..

    And with so many diferent models and parts etc this would not be financially viable..

    This means that thirty year guarantees will soon be a thing of the past as they are replaced with fifteen..

    Hope ive remembered that correctly

    Terry
