A few hours of shop time into wearing my new safety glasses, I found that not only were they uncomfortable, but they were scratching up my face pretty good. Disappointed that the glasses I paid the princely sum of $9 for were tearing up my mug, I searched for a way to fix them. To my embarrassment, my 10-year-old niece/helper suggested that I’d been using the tool that could fix them for the last two hours — she was, of course, correct.
I found that with a bit of 320 grit sandpaper you can not only remove whatever spurs and excess molding lines are causing you grief — you can also reshape areas near the nose piece, if you want, to fit your face more comfortably.
Is this a big deal? Most certainly not. But it can be handy if you’re living with plastic safety glasses that are the slightest bit uncomfortable.
