Guide To Shaping our wire frame glasses to fit your face

  Unlike modern day eye wear. Most spectacle frames
  of the1800's were " One size fits all." And with just
  a simple adjustment to the bows could be fit to any
  one. This style of frame proved to be both functional
  and comfortable.

  The first step is to adjust the width of the frames.
  Put the glasses on and hook the cables over your
  ears. If the forward part of the bow is tight
  ( pressure near your temples ) A small " S" bend is
  needed.

 With a needle nose pliers 
 grip the bow firmly near the
 hinge then using you thumb 
 and forefinger bend the bow 
 outward about 10 to 20
 degrees

Next move the pliers 1 to 2 inches down the bow and bend the remainder inward about the same 10 to 20 degrees.

Repeat these steps on the other bow.

 The next step is to adjust the length of the bows

 Using your thumb and 
 forefinger make a series of
 small bends in the cable part
 of the bow to lengthen or
 shorten the frames.
