    I've had the same question. Someone told me that using a dremel and a belt sander would probably work the best. The school I work at also has a laser cutter though too...but I have no idea if that would cut haha.

    I have done it and it does work. You need to be very careful and take your time. The DIY on the O-review by Josh is very informative. It's best if you can practice on a junk lens or two first.

    I have all the necessary tools an gear to do this. I just need to pick up the premask tape, which can be obtained from any sign shop. I am thinking of doing this soon.

    Anyone have a better technique to extend the nosepieces on o-matter frames? This sounds soooo strange, but I need to use Juliet Nose bombs to make the Fuel Cell's fit me properly haha. (I always have a backup frame for each) lol.

    Haha! i got that too, but using the larger nose pieces solved that problem for me. I think the Half-X lenses are too big anyway, looks awkward.

    photos when you do it!

    Yes, that's a great idea! I was wondering that. What I find that makes me a little uneasy is the amount of waste you get off the shields, but I guess there's no real other way. Good idea though OakleyNerd! I'll try and match some of my lenses up tonight and see if they fit on my M-Frame

    If you have LensCrafters or similar store near you they can cut it for you professionally. One machines traces the shape of the inner orbital on the frame and another cuts and polishes the edges to the exact shape. My local Vision Express store charge £15 to cut lens.
