Ok here we go... kinda nervous!

 this is the first set Mr. Parker and I have crafted with the intent for public sale and not personal use , keep in mind its at about 95% (just need to make an actual nose piece and finish off the leather with a wax sealant)  Smiley

I am sorry that the pictures are not the clearest (camera phone) but I am hopeful you can get a general idea.

Yeah, not bad at all! Out of curiosity - are the frames metal or plastic?

Those look awesome!
I just recently made my first pair too (for selling purposes) Sold on ebay! YAH!


Just a quick question(s). Did you use glue to secure the leather? And what type?

Again, great job!

They're better than mine..that's for sure. And yet underneath I think we both started with the same  style of goggles. You've done a really good job there..something to be proud of.

I say, Joe it's jolly frightening out here.

Shaking? You silly goose! I'm just doing the Watusi

             Hey thanks! And Grats on your sale!  as for the glue it was a mix  for the most part e 3000 and a bit of locktite or faster setting glue. Plus it helps that its 3 or 4 oz deerskin, very stretchy!

Speaking of the metal vs. plastic, I was wondering if anyone knows of where to purchase metal frames/ocular caps that aren't vintage or hand fabricated?  I think this first set for sale turned out well, I just curious about other options.  My thanks if you have any insight.
