For your consideration is a pair of goggles featuring a mechanical iris shutter over the right eye. The eye-cups have a very snug 2" inner diameter and will accept standard welding goggle lenses.

Notice!!!: This is NOT 'Made to Order'. You will get the goggles you see. I will have them in the mail the next day or sooner, you will get them in 3-4 days depending on how quickly USPS Priority is running.

This is a unique piece. There is nothing on this that will remind your admirers of something they saw on a website or something they saw in a home improvement store plumbing section.

You can go to instructables and see me build them here:

The shutter is a lotus-petal style closure that is very robust. You may view a video of the iris here:

The strap is good quality leather. Leather is NOT my thing but I think this came out pretty well. The strap lengths are adjustable with a knurled nut and to take up the slack there is a spring mechanism on the back part of the strap.

Except for a handful of screws and a poly-carbonate lens, I hammered every piece of this out of sheet, round, or square stock.

This is a substantial purchase, I will happily speak with you on the phone or via email before and after the sale to address any questions or concerns you may have.

Cheers!
