    I think your analogy hit the nail on the head. First lab I ever took over used a beat up SGX....hadn't worked in the 3 months prior to me getting there. Had to go in day one and fix it. So maybe I'm...

    I'm looking to do the exact opposite. I'm wanting it to allow for selection via drop down menu. But the way they have it programmed is to auto populate based on the lens selection. The only thing is,...

  4. Building Lens Catalog In Compulink....Help?

    Guys, I'm about ready to set this thing on fire. Hoping anyone might have tips or tell me I'm not totally crazy. I did a training session with Compulink on building the lens catalog, but the way they...

    Yeah, it's a lot harder now even without Covid adding to it. And every area demographic is different. So what works for one office may not work for another. And right now, you'll definitely need to...

    That's really odd. Are you guys in a heavily populated area or is the optical area heavily saturated in a smaller locale? I know it can be tough when you're the only one on duty. If anyone would like...

    Frame reps can absolutely be a huge help. If you're using Indeed, make sure you're also perusing resumes on Indeed and reach out to individuals. I've always had success through a combination of...

    O_o That's surprising. We paid a flat fee per shipment, not per job and it was less than $25. And never had issues with remakes.

    For truly independent, I would say either Luzerne Optical in PA, or even Solidar in Florida. Used Solidar a good bit and they're excellent all around. Great pricing, solid work. Really never had any...

    I've always used the bucket and pump method for Santinelli edgers. Mostly because we were edging too many jobs in house. Wouldn't have to change the pantyhose "sock" until Friday every week....

    It looks like a latch. I would think apply pressure and then slip it out. If you look there by the nasal. However, before doing ANYTHING to this pair of glasses. Call Lindberg and ask them...

    So I gotta say, via more unconventional methods, the scratch resistance is pretty spectacular. I used and abused this thing and there's not so much as a mark on it. Not even minor. I think the...

    If we all had deep enough pockets, I think the way to go would be having multiple machines from different manufacturers for their different strengths.

    While the Briot is nice and less expensive for the more modern features, Santinelli hands down for reliability and lifespan. Every machine has pros and cons. And while I prefer a 7EX to anything...

    From what I understand from our rep, they're replacing Avance with Rock. Interested to see how well it really holds up. End of the day, like Lensman11 said, nothing is scratchproof. Really wish...

    Quig is spot on. Every edger requires a skilled technician. Too many things going on that they won't have a clue about. If you're really wanting to have your lab provide the lenses, I would suggest...
