Other than my brazing goggles, which I got at a welding supplies store, the rest of my goggles were found upon my workbench after I finished making them.

They seem to appear on my workbench after making them too! Uncanny!  Wink

Or those assorted items that have nothing to do with ocular wear that suddenly turn into goggles.

Obviously making ones own is rather encouraged in some quarters (see even I can be tactful occasionally)  Wink

There are a few threads on the subject, most of which are linked in this one.

http://brassgoggles.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,78.0.html

I'm finally having a stab myself and I'm no maker by a long shot. But if you don't have the skill or means and you are on a budget (I'm making no assumptions just mentioning it) here are a couple of examples of what are rapidly becoming budget classics.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gas-Welding-Goggles-Flip-Up-Lenses/dp/B000RA12TQ/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1310674942&sr=8-2

These are very popular for honing down painting and modding skills (and then selling for ten times the price on etsy, ahem) but they won't break the bank either.

Of course the favourite comedy analogy remains that Sp goggles are much like a Jedi Lightsabre. To truly complete your training young padawan, sooner or later you must build your own! Cheesy

I assume you are talking about the illusive German ones. These are the only sources I've found for them on the entire net.

Clearly, it is time for a cable "reality" show with a title like Mysterious Goggles of the Uncanny! in which they investigate these phenomena. You know, one of those shows where most of it is filmed in spooooky IR, with over-amped background sounds and lots of jump-cutting for a suddenly-nothing-happened-in-a-scary-way effect.

I found a nice pair of tactical goggles at the supply sergeant which were both reasonable as well as functional. Although I know that I will pick up a pair of welding goggles from the steampunk emporium, the tactical goggles should not diminish your peripheral vision to any significant extent...which was a prime consideration. They are also light enough that they have not deformed the bowler that I leave them affixed to.
