    My tech has 'modified' quite a few Oakleys in his day to keep that nasty ole step bevel from keeping us from being able to Rx in house.
    Have I told you today how much I hate poly?

    Barry has quite a few videos on the Santinelli site of him doing this very thing

    Man you guys modifying the bevel on frames with a dremel... that is hardcore stuff.

    I've done many a step bevel on a hand wheel and finished with sand paper by hand, but I would be scared to mess with a frame like that. good job guys!
