Pentax 6X7 question

I was looking at my 6X7 tonight and wondering: If I replace the glass in the unscrewable eyepiece cover and replace it with pat of my old glasses lens, will that allow me to use my 6X7 without my glasses? Has anyone ever tried that?

I understand that Pentax used to sell screw in dioptre adjusters. Search them out on eBay.

The metered prism I picked up for my 6x7 was miserable to focus until I realized the eyepiece already had a diopter installed. After you remove the eyepiece just unscrew the retaining ring in the back side of it to remove the glass. Should be easy to fit another.

Thank you, Chris and Tom.

When I get my new glasses this summer, I'll have the optometrist put part of my old lens in my diopter holder. It would be great to not have to wear glasses when shooting with at least one of my cameras.
