Greetings.

I didn't want to add this to the already congested lens cutting thread..

Looking to turn my crosshairs into shooting glasses.
I shoot indoors a lot and both ranges are very dark. I'm lookin at high-yellow or g26 (?) to have cut to fit the Crosshair.

I've noticed one cut for a crosshair already, has anyone else done it?

What lenses would you use?

Anyone want to practice their cutting skills? I'll supply lenses

Realistically, how hard is this to do?
I'm OK with a dremmel, but my hand shakes and this is pretty precision work.

TIA,

D

I would use a Hi Blue or Persinimon (I cna't spell) goggle lens...they should work really well

Yeah, that would be percinnamon HAHA...


Hi Persimmon is nice, and a lot of shooter lenses are on the yellow or persimmon bases. G26 is the "Ultimate" shooter, but have fun. Crosshairs are not an easy one to cut...

Thanks for the suggestions. I"l lhave to check out a g26 in person. I have persimmon fives I use for shooting right now. Too dark for the ranges I shoot at. They're good for the outdoor ranges.

Looks rather risky/complicated. I may be PMing some folks for chopping services.

Yeah, I think I will. Just have to buy/find the lenses. And send them to Dr. Chop. :D

Looked through the tutorial... that's too much fine work for me to do. I can do rough stuff, but none of that fine work.

So, sent off my glasses and a HEATER lens to Dr. Chop. Come to find out. The Heater lens wont work.

Doh.

Back to the drawing board. Sent sweep/strike lens to see if that works.

Yeah man. Sorry about that. Gotta be unique, you know?

Crosshairs with HI Yellow would indeed be the ultimate shooting glasses.

SWEET!!!

SWWEEEETTTT!!! OK. So... looking for + red polarized for Juliet and for Xhair AND for Oil Drum. That's not too much to ask for is it?? Yeah, Dream on, I know.

I think I'll stop buying glasses for a while and just keep getting lenses.

:D

As for the iridium coated..... same Hi Yellow tint or different?

I also have Blue Iridium (the HI Persimmon like) and +Red for the CH (from Heater), if you're interested in pics I could take a few. Also usual Persimmon, Ice, VR50 Gold Iridium, VR28 Titanium and several other boring lenses, but they are usual HM/T_O factory "test-releases".

I can chop up just about anything so long as there is enough lens material to start with...I have a Hi Yellow here that I have yet to cut...So many choices...I just don't care for the aviator style frames...Shame on me HAHA.
