    Well, let's say I eff up and have to do a remake. Or the patient wants the proverbial "scratch warranty". What would I do? Soak the glasses in a vat of acid?

    I see problems with temperature changes.

    I see problems with servicing the glasses.

    I see problems with half of the opticians on Optiboard sniffing glue too much.

    That's a great idea, Barry. How would that training be obtained? I think a bona-fide "frame stylist" would be a big hit.

    The appeal of the Guild is that you do it yourselves. No red tape. No rules, just yours. No stupid history to circumvent. Reinvent the wheel. "Guild Optician" sounds better than "ABO" anyway.
