    Wave Frame making questions

    Hi all, Iíve got a few questions regarding hand-making frames. Hopefully someone on here can offer some assistance!

    1. I have the B&S groove scraper tool for plastic frames but Iím thinking some type of dremel burr in my drill press would be a better long-term solution for cutting the groove in the eyewire of the acetate. Does anyone know of a bit or burr I could buy that is the right shape for this? The groove has a really specific shape so maybe thereís an optical supplier that makes one?

    2. I canít for the life of me find where to buy temple cores... I donít care where they come from, does anyone have thoughts on where I might find a reliable Supply?

    3. I plan to laminate my cores in between two halves of temple. Again, Iíll need a specific dremel bit for this. Thoughts?

    any other ideas, input, considerations very much welcome!

    thanks!

    Try:
    Zhejiang Jiada Trade Co., Ltd.Trading Company, China. For temple cores with and without the spring hinge attached.

    what angle do you need for the bevel cutter ?
