Dear all, you may have noticed that The Graflex Shop offer now a dark version of their glass eye thumbscrew, which is pretty cool. Unfortunately I bought 3 couple of months ago and at that time only the clear one was available. However I found a way to dark a clear one . If like me you want to dark your TGS glass eye thumbscrew, the following tutorial can help you.
1- first remove the glass eye from the screw. The glass is glued to the screw with only few glue and therefore Usually pushing back and force with the finger is enough to remove it. If not you can use a fine tool to help you out.
2- remove the rest of glue on the glass and on the screw and cleanup both surfaces with white spirit or alcohol.
3- paint the back/flat face of the glass with black paint and let it dry.
