    Think it's possible to re work the nose bridge on rivet models to make them use screws?

    If someone has a messed up Juliet or an orbital and a nose bridge I can borrow to see if I can come up with something? This could be huge for the community

    I don't know how screws would look though?? Maybe like threaded set pins? Even then dunno... I've ordered a sheet of rubber to try to make new gaskets to go inside the nose bridge... That along with what your talking about would be excellent. As of now, I just remove the pins and put them back in myself, but it's not the most pleasant experience.

    I was thinking screw together pins. If I can find some small enough. I'd really like to get one that's apart and take a good look at it.

    As for the rubber, I've got some two compound stuff that cures in 5 min. Could use that. Does your rubber solution work?

    Can you take a pin out and measure it for me? Diameter, head diameter, and length?

    Hate to bring up fOakleys but one of the tell-tale signs of them (if I remember) is that the inside of the nose piece has screws yet the front looks correct. Maybe seeing how they are constructed would help with this solution. Anyone get burned and have a pair to dissect for "mad" science?

    Yeah, I'll be taking them apart soon. I have once used JB Weld on a pair of my friends. I'll admit they were nice and tight... I just wouldn't call it a flex coupler anymore haha

    Could also try swapping out the rivets in an XS with the Juliet's?? Assuming they're the same size/length.
