    Dear Joel,

    This is not so simple for me:-( You know, I live in a little
    Midwest city where there is no decent watch repair person,
    not speaking of machine workshop!
    
    Of course Purdue University has everything, but my experience
    with showing my inverting scope to Purdue people was negative:-)
    (Finally I found and fixed the problem myself).
    
    Alex.
