research: fixing titanium glasses =__=


wtf
i just got these glasses
i swear i didn't step on them. maybe i was eating them in my sleep or something -__-;

anyway, i have contacts but dislike them, i can't deal with having a regular sleep schedule and everything always feels a bit surreal / blurry

so here's some research on eyeglass fixing / making:

Front frame lasercut out of cellulose acetate, with the intention to heat the sides and bend them back. Wonder if he/she ended up completing it

!! all the things about welding titanium frames

Okay, hopefully I will do things like apply to jobs this weekend and Monday go in with a clear plan for fixing these. I want to try spot-welding them, it actually broke in this really convenient way that I can try welding it and if it fails I can still try to make my own leg.
