    I recently embarked on a mission to custom cut lenses for some of my old X-Metal frames. I had a dremel and figured what the hell.

    My strategy was to cover the donor lens (Big Taco for my XS) with painters tape, and trace a beater XS lens onto the tape. Once I has the lens traces, I used an razor to score the lens along the trace marks and peel away the excess tape. Then, the dremel took over.

    My first pair of lenses to turned out pretty good, but I'm wondering if there's any of you Oakley freaks out there that know a better DIY method to cut lenses! Lens Cutting Techniques? - IMG_2752.jpg

    Looks like a good job to me. Of course that is subjective to how they fit in the frame.

    Any chipping when you got done?
    Did you just dremel to a point and then sand to finish?
    I think you have the correct approach. Sanding would be the finishing touch
