A polarized 3He target, which uses conventional optical pumping with 4He discharge lamps, is described. Emphasis is given to the experience gained with its use during nuclear scattering experiments using proton beams from the University of Manitoba cyclotron. An analysis of possible errors in present and past experiments is given.
