_O2 : Barrelling Media

 

 

 

Why : The initial barrelling stage for smoothing our acetate frame fronts. The cubes seen above gently deburr any rough edges on the frame front incurred by machining. Each of our handmade spectacles go through this process which takes many hours of continual polishing.

What : 12mm Beech Blocks are small enough to reach every orifice and facet on the frame front. The blocks contain natural oils which aid the smoothing process inside large rotary barrels. Our frame fronts tumble against the beech blocks. This can be likened to stone that has become smooth from being in the sea.
