Outstanding work by Malcolm with a faithful restoration of the optics of these 1916 binoculars which were carried by my Great Grandfather on the Western Front during World War One. Taking excellent care of our heirloom, he has provided a very prompt and careful repair of the damaged eyepieces and full clean of the prisms to working condition. Great value for money, and top shelf workmanship.

I had been looking for a long time for someone to service and repair my late father's Jena 7x50 binoculars which he had handed down to me some 20 years ago. I came across Malcolm's website and with in a very short time the Binoculars came back to me in perfect working order. I am so pleased with the result and now I have handed them down to my own son. Thanks again Malcolm and I would absolutely recommend your knowledge and experience to any person seeking optical repairs or service. Wayne from Sydney.

Mate that’s looks amazing thank you so much for the work it’s greatly appreciated.

Thank you again for the efforts may potentially have another in line to be acquired that will likely end up in your hands at some stage also for some TLC (far better condition than what this one was)

I assembled the binoculars last night and they are fantastic. They work (and look) better than they ever have.

Thanks for doing such a great repair job on the binoculars (I have attached a photo where they now stand in all their glory).

My passion for all things optical began more than 50 years ago as a young lad using my Father’s binoculars whilst sailing. I was captivated by the way objects from so far away could be brought so close and could be observed in such detail.

This interest in optical instruments grew and eventually led me into a career in optics, as a factory trained instrument engineer. My early days of study and training began in association with the British Ministry of Defence in navigational and observation systems. This founded a 20 year relationship with major European optical manufacturers and led me to the business I have established today, where I have been servicing and repairing optical instruments for over 40 years.

The world of optics still fascinates me, and I am proud to pass on my knowledge and continuing passion to the staff who have now joined me on this journey.
