Great job! The grommets can be found at a decent hardware store with all the cardboard parts bins. I got min at Ace Hardware for cheap.

Just got to this thread. I am ALWAYS entertained by the creative #}%€ people do on this site. I would never have thought to try making a new lens like this, but the feeling of accomplishment when you do definitely overrides the $ you saved by doing it.
I love stuff like this...

I'm just finding this thread now... great work! Really creative. I'm debating doing the same thing myself. I also found this link in another forum, someone else had luck using this glass for their speedometers. Of course you'd have to carefully cut the adjustment hole. I might give it a shot... the price is right!

I tried the watch glass initially. I got a glass drill bit and tried to drill a hole for the adjustment knob but the glass cracked. The watch glass is very thin and fragile. Maybe someone who has more glass drilling experience will have better luck.
