Simple cheap goggles for working with deathrays. I made them a while ago, but i thought i´ll share it anyway.
I didn´t need any expensive ones, i just needed to protect my eyes.

You can slowly lost your vision by looking at the spot where you concentrate the light, if you don't use protection.
If you have a dog, he should wear goggles too!

Here´s what i´ve used:

electric insulation sticky tape
paper tubes
gold paint
straw
paper
leather
glue
rubber band
welding helmet glass
glass cutter
pliers
some plastic gears from a scanner
needle & thread

* Do not use these goggles for welding

You really need to get this one like i have or silmilar if you will use it for deathrays.
Don´t use just ordinary tinted glass from some cheap goggles.
It needs to be so dark that you will not see almost anything throught it in a room, and you must be able to look into the sun with it.

I´ve took a glass from my old welding helmet.
Used a glass cutter to cut it in half, then in quares..uf,rather see the pictures:D

*look up how to cut glass by yourself, im bad at this:)
*cutted myself in a finger, so a pair of gloves is really handy

Step 2: Tubes

So...
I had this paper tube. Easy to cut, then i used some tape to wrap it around.

After that i spray-painted it gold.

Step 3: Glass holder part

Cut out 4 same circles and put the glass in the middle od two of them. Wrap tape around it´s edges.
You should end up wih 2 weird looking plates.

Then...gold paint again.

Step 4: Leather

This part goes on your eyes so it´s good to be soft.
Put it on leather, leave some space next to it, wrap it, cut it, glue it, cut it and wait until it´s dry.
....then you can superglue those edges of leather inside the tube
... or take needle and thread and sew it like i did. Takes a while but looks really good.
