finally some news [Sep. 11th, 2008|12:42 am]
[music |DM enjoy the silence]

since my -not-so-recent move to London, time has been running speed light fast...
Despite having many hobbies I am still a proud goggles maker (in fact and to my happy surprise, it's my only income). I have done tons of new stuff in the past months, just a little glance after the

yes, it was something a bit difficult to make, I have been working hard to make this pair of sunglasses in brass AND light enough to be wore without an elastic strap.
the aluminium alloy version -tested since august when riding my bicycle- is much lighter

it's really mesh & lace work out of metal, I wanted to keep all the stainless hardware plus my usual machined look, and the challenge was to keep the weight under the 80gramms threshold.
instead of all what you could buy elsewhere, those eyeglasses are 100% serviceable, any parts could be swapped, repaired, serviced. in the past I have had a lot of sunglasses and just for a missing bolt or a broken hinge I had to scrap them.

in parallel, I have been working on large goggles for biking..

I know it's been ages :) I'm fine, not going to Machinenfest which sucks rear but otherwise good! There is a possibility of TG Halloween which I assume you will be attending?
