Making Aviator Eyeglasses Method 2

Dear Orchid people

Bouyed by the kind comments about my mokume-gane frame for James
Binnion, I’ve put up another set of images showing another process
for making eyeglasses: fabrication. Most of you can fabricate can’t
you. Well it’s just another case of set the parts up and solder them.

With the fabrication method I can use thin sheet for some parts and
thick metal for others. And there’s less waste. However, naturally it
all comes out annealed after the soldering. Using the first method I
showed you, saw-from-solid-plate, the few
solder joints use extra-easy solder, MP 610 degC. It’s the one that
the optical trade uses, and will expect to find should they be so
lucky as to get their hands on one of my frames.

You can all certainly see why I asked Brian to make my eyeglasses
frames. Those aviator frames are just too cool
