I really want to make these frames work again. They’re lovely, but the plastic parts are very frail. I’m considering using a resin of some kind to piece them together, I attempted to use superglue, but then the bridge broke while I was holding it to set.
It’s hard to find cats-eye frames like these now, I think these were my Omi’s from the mid-60s. She isn’t sure, but she said they aren’t her mother’s.
I guess the main problem with reconstructing the plastic is making them so lenses will still fit snugly in them. I don’t have tools to work with metal, or that would be a more sturdy option to work on.
