I have a set of Swift Tyrol 15x60 binos that had/have a frozen diopter adjuster. The male-threaded sleeve that carries the ep in the diopter female threads had grease that had welded the sleeve and ring threads together. My fumbling heavy-handedness broke and bent the two parts last night, after 3ish weeks in PB Blaster, occasional heat, and repeated attempts at forcing the issue. I no longer have the patience for my impatience, so as humiliating as it is, I am here with hat in hand, hoping that someone might have a junk pair of binos with a similarly configured diopter adjusting mechanism. I also am hoping that this person will be willing to sell that part to me. Posted Image

I might have the incorrect nomenclature, so I have attached a few pics. Most of it is self-explanatory, but the arrows delineate as follows: yellow=eyepiece (mine is still in tip-top shape), red=threaded sleeve (needed) that carries the ep, black=diopter ring and arm (needed).

Orange arrow is one of several cracks.

If you think you have the appropriate pieces, please, PM me and I will get specific measurements, etc. Thank youPosted Image
