A VERY useful lens shade can be made from a piece of old inner tube. First lay out a pattern on paper as shown in the drawing. Trace this pattern onto a piece of rubber from the old inner tube.

After the cement has dried, give the shade a coat of flat black paint inside and out.

This lens shade can be flattened and carried in the pocket, and will always come back to shape when wanted.—• Alfred Weber, Bridgeton, N.J.
