    Cutting lenses by hand (a guide)

    A few days ago @iamFLIP asked me if I had any tips when it comes to cutting lenses by hand. I was just about to cut a Radar lens shield for a Trenchcoat for @hondazcrxsi so it was the perfect opportunity to take some pics of the process and share how I go about it. DISCLAIMER! This is how I do...

    Can they be saved?

    My daughter took my eye patch 2s off my head and threw them in the ground. Any suggestions on what might work? Already bought some double edges to replace them but can't bring myself to throw these out without at least trying

    Display case. DIY

    Hi there. As a carpenter I've been thinking of building a custom case for my collection. It would be nice to buy one of those real cases but i know i can do well without spending a fortune. Besides I'd rather spend the cash on shades. My collection certainly has out grown what they are in now. I...

    Quick Juliet Tune-Up DIY

    Most people who clicked on this thread already know that every 2-3 years the glasses start getting loose and in most cases will not stay on your head. Not exactly what I was expecting when I bought my pair. Oakley does a tune-up for something a little over USD 50. I made a DIY video where I...

    Lens Cutting Techniques?

    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...

    Melt X Metals???

    Before you form a mob and try to lynch me....I was wondering if anyone knows if a jeweler would be able to melt down a BROKEN pair of Metals (which I haven't picked up yet, and know it will be very hard to find based on the indestructibility of these, but maybe I could get parts here and there)...

After plenty of experimentation here is what I started with and have been trying different techniques to see what happens.

    I Was Bored

    I put the ruby lenses in my clear frames. So I was left with white frames and gold lenses. After putting the gold lenses in I decided the red logo needed to go. So I lightly sanded off the red logo and now I have these...... I need to find something to get the minuscule red marks that are...

    Painting Frames- Questions

    I'm thinking of starting up a project for a pair of glasses that aren't getting any love from me, but I could see wearing if I do the mod I'm contemplating. The mod I want to do involves a couple layers of paint. I don't have a lot of painting experience, however. I know I need to prep the...
