Doesn't that make it hard to see through them :>)
But seriously, how fine grit? I have a set of SUPER Farb frames with that
same finish, and I'd like to get it off too.
Any idea what the metal is? I was wondering if it might be aluminium. The
pair I have (please, hold your laughter) came from CW, are made in China, and
have huge round lenses. They kind of look right, despite the little plastic
nose pieces, but I intend to use them mostly for shooting live and hunting. I
figure those big lenses will provide some protection. Oh, I forgot to mention
that they cost $9.00! At Wmsburg!!
There was as sutler at White Plains who had the best frames of this sort that
I have ever seen outside of a museum. He was charging 35.00 with reading
lenses, and like an idiot I forgot to buy some. Like most of these, the lenses
were symetrical so you could get two pair in different strengths and
interchange lenses, if your vision is like mine. They looked like iron, and had the big
rings. Anyone know who this might have been?
