    German Optical Supplier

    I was at Vision Expo West a few years back and purchased some dispensing tools from a German company. I cannot remember their name. Their catalog was a pail blue with a picture of a frame warmer on the cover.

    If you can help thank you. I have that catalog somewhere buried and have not been able to find it.

    Thank you

    German supplier

    They were called B & K, then changed to B & S (Breitfeld & Schliekert) then they changed the web site to www.sight-tools.com, which has been closed.

    I am also looking to see if anyone knows who they are now, if they still exist. They had THE BEST nosepads at the best price, even though they were notorious for 6 month back orders from Germany.

    They were always B and S, the US distributer was called B and K and last I heard they closed up shop,, you can still order from Germany.

    re: B & K

    I spent a lot of time trying to find them. I found I could get their stuff through Luzerne.

    The loctite you buy at Wal-Mart or Lowes is a disaster on poly, but B & S did carry a special loctite that is safe for poly.:)

    Got in touch with them. The American importer went out of business. You can order direct from Germany, but it's a 500 euro minimum. That's a LOT of nosepads...
