Comfortable, Safe Dust Mask

Comfortable, Safe Dust Mask

09-08-2014 01:14 AM by CharlesA | 23 comments »

I’m not that good at wearing the disposable dust masks that I have. I just don’t like them. So, I end up not wearing them all the time. I was reading one of Bill Pentz's pieces on dust collection, and he emphasized how importance it was to wear a good dust mask and recommended this 3M 7500 series mask (7501 is small, 7502 is medium, 7503 is large—I use the medium). I assumed it was really expensive. Turns out that to buy the mask and a set of 3M 6001 Organic Vapor Car...

Trend AirShield Pro, Up for Review

Trend AirShield Pro, Up for Review

09-03-2014 01:34 PM by woodshopmike | 10 comments »

I’ve owned the Trend AirShield Pro for two years now. This piece of equipment is definitely a keeper and has made woodworking much more enjoyable now that I no longer suffer from the congestion and sinus perils that used to plague my woodworking. The full right up of pros and cons can be found on my blog. Thanks for reading guys, I hope this helps! Regards, Mike

Great solution for some of us older folk!

I grew weary swapping reading glasses for safety glasses or trying to wear both at the same time. It really was not conducive to good safety habits. I had seen safety glasses on the internet that had a small magnified “window” and tried them but were pretty useless for general shop work. I did a little homework and found this company that sells safety glasses that magnify the ENTIRE lens. No more trying to contort to see what you are working on. They can be had in several di...

The best push block I've ever used, but so pricey I make reasons to use it (so I feel better)

The best push block I've ever used, but so pricey I make reasons to use it (so I feel better)

When I first saw the MicroJig Grr Ripper (they seem to be on a YouTube product placement campaign, with many icons now sporting their products), I thought “what a neat concept…but do I really want to spend $60 on a push block?” For the most part, I was on the fence, given the large price tag, and perception as a “gateway” product into the realm of MicroJig accessories. It was only when I used a Grr Ripper for the first time that I realized just how much potential the design had to improve t...

Good Safety Glasses

Good Safety Glasses

04-12-2014 04:23 AM by Whiskers | 15 comments »

Okay guys, not sure on protocol here, but I searched on here on the subject before I bought these and didn’t really find any useful info. There was a post from someone who bought some expensive motorized safety glasses made for paintball users, but that was a bit more than I wanted to go for. Anyway, I got these today, and played with them a bit, and than posted this review on Amazon, so I’m re-posting it here for anyone that wants to make comment, or find if they are looking fo...

What a great idea

What a great idea

04-02-2014 09:46 PM by Andrew | 1 comment »

http://www.fullpro.com/products-purchase.php The idea behind these safety glasses is simple. Normal glasses, when worn with earmuffs, get uncomfortable (to me anyway). The earmuffs tend to pinch the “arms” of the glasses against the sides of your head. Also, they affect hearing protection, breaking the seal the earmuffs have around your ears. These glasses have straps instead of rigid “arms”. The straps attach to the outside of your earmuffs via adhesive Hook ...

Effective, Comfortable Hearing Protection

Effective, Comfortable Hearing Protection

03-10-2014 11:37 PM by CharlesA | 8 comments »

Becoming more safety conscious in the workshop is something I’ve had to learn—it doesn’t come naturally to me. So even after I started wearing safety glasses regularly, using safety guards on tools, and consciously following safe tool use, I didn’t wear hearing protection. Why not? Because the loud noises didn’t really bother me, and I didn’t like any of the hearing protection I tried: some cheap earmuff style from the local hardware store, and the head...

Eye protection and Hearing protection all in ONE

Eye protection and Hearing protection all in ONE

03-07-2014 09:33 PM by redryder | 9 comments »

I’ll admit that I can be lazy. The main reason I bought my dust collector was so that I didn’t have to sweep the floor so often. I have never owned a respirator. I seldom put on a dust mask because it fogs up my glasses. The only time I use hearing protection is when I use the planner. The one thing I do use religiously is eye protection. I have had two occasions to have friends give me first hand accounts of what an emergency room doctor has to do to get an object out ...

Looks good so far

Looks good so far

I’m giving this five stars for now with the disclaimer that I’ve only used it for a short while on one day so far. I will update this if any problems arise. I see some of the issues with the older models, but the Airshield Pro seems to have corrected some of those. For example it is very light. I saw some complaints on the older one being heavy. They also say the current battery will run all day but I haven’t tried it yet so I don’t know. Here’s why I b...

OK while they last, but they don't last long.

I bought a spray system from peachtree woodworking on black friday, and on a whim I added two sets of these earmuffs to the order because they were on sale for under $10, normal price $14.99. http://www.ptreeusa.com/safety_products.htm#4205 As far as hearing protection goes, they worked OK – until they broke. Comfort:3/5. They weren’t uncomfortable, but it wasn’t like Pamela Anderson was covering my ears with her ample bosom either. Fit: 3/5. Even after adjusting...
