I have a dead Telrad. It's very dead, for several reasons, and I'm not going to try to further to revive it. I want to remove the lens to make a split pupil finder. So far, my efforts to remove the lens have failed. I don't see any glue holding it in place, but I can't get it budge. There are two plastic parts helping to hold the lens in place, so my next step was to saw those off then hope maybe the lens falls out.
Before I start hacking this poor telrad apart, I'd like to ask if there is any out there who's taken the lens out of a telrad, and how they did it. Thank you.
