    That is what was done with the first NYLOR frames manufactured by the then SL which is today's ESSILOR in the early 1960's.

    Another thing that I have found to take off the PAL markings on new lenses with AR that works well is Scotch tape. It takes them right off.

    If it's really in there tight, you may have to take a pair of cutters and cut the nylon cord where it feeds through the two holes at the end of the eyewire. (be careful not to damage the frame finish) and do a restring. If it's that tight and you do manage to get it out without chipping it, you may chip the new lens or break the string getting the new lens back in.

    I think you mean 'marking up frames' and that is not really a question that is suitable for a public board. Sorry.

    Im pretty sure its: +100-1.50x75
    I believe u solve by knowing +100 is felt at 75 and -50 is -150 away (as if neutralizing on vertometer)
    Its been a couple years since optical school, and all the cross cylinders I saw had two parts, is this only for one eye?

    Hope this helps but I'm about 90% on it to be honest. May want to check with others still

    Yes you are totally right but you most probably also ripped off the hydrophobic coating underneath the markings, and that will show soon as accumulated dirt that will be hard to clean.

    Redhot Jumper "Drillseal" ...................

    When mounting rimless frames with Polycarbonate lenses do not forget to put a drop of "Drillseal" into each hole before inserting the screws to prevent any stress cracks into the lens and having to re-do the lenses.

    Just stumbled on to this one.

    When measuring Bifocal or Trifocal and your customer cannot see the lines you've placed on the lenses, try using a colored dry erase marker and "highlight" the reading segment. When they hold something in the reading position the color will show them where the segment is to be placed, and dry erase makes for quick adjustments.

    ^_^ Cheers!

    Have you ever had a hard time snapping off a Tap n Lok screw, or other snap off screws, because you couldn't get a good grip on it with plyers? Take a hex or star wrench and fit it over the screw and simply bend it, works like a charm.

    is there a trick on how to take out a screw that's perfectly stuck in one part of the temple hinge? the screw looks like a small watch battery the way it broke off in there.

    I called one of our labs and they said they have to drill it out. There must be another way.

    Have you tried using a punch?

    We don't have one here. Unfortunately, I don't think the doctor will spring for some new tools. =/

    Then I hope the doc will be okay with sending that frame off to the lab for a small repair :)

    I called our lab and its $30. I wouldn't want a patient to pay that much. I'll try some new macgyver method to dislodging that stubborn screw.

    I use a "slot file" to carefully cut a slit in the end of the screw- deep enough so that I can use the small screw driver blade to back out the broken screw. The file costs appx $35 but will be your best friend if you know how to use it. Hilco sells them. I'm sure any 'ole timer is familiar with the fix......

    Or, you said the temple so, flip the eyeglasses over, and use a slotting file to put a slot in the bottom of the screw where it usually sticks out a tad. Even if if doesn't, slot it, and just use a very small blade. (might try heating it first also)

    I would have to disagree. I don't believe if applied and removed quickly, that scotch tape would be any different than a riki pad being removed from the surface. Just an opinion.
