I think your best bet would be to contact Suddarth Optical Repair in Henryetta OK and have them take a look at your binos. Hopefully, they can come up with a workaround with spare parts or whatever it takes to get your focusers working again. They're certainly among the few that are qualified to do what's necessary.
Let us know how your sad saga pans out...
BTW, welcome to Cloudy Nights Binoculars!

Can you provide "Contact Information" for Apogee? Email or phone number?

but can someone give a ballpark figure of cost of repair?
I realize the cost is related to assessment time, time to repair, cost of parts;
but a range or at least minimum starting cost to assess and minor adjustment?

I've come across the Seibert Optical site where eyepiece sets for these and the Orion BT70 are sold as interchangeable, which may lead to another "parts" source. It appears they may have used the same focus assembly.

I hope they can be repaired at a reasonable price
