This is Wilbear Wright, indirect descendant of the Wright Brothers in Dayton, Ohio. (Actually, it's a National Park Services scavenger hunt reward) He's one of the cutest aviation momentos I have.

We'll, I broke his goggle while trying to push it above his head ....

Like we say with omelets, some more breakage is needed. So I broke off the other piece too.

The goggle is less than .25", so I use helping hands soldering station to secure it. I use a zip saw and cut a 1/8 notch.

Simply tie a knot so it doesn't slip. Notch the other side and do the same, make sure it's not too tight.

Totally coincidental the part has COOL printing on it, so I try to line up & center the wording too ...
