Finally can breathe safely!

Finally can breathe safely!

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000Z53WKU/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i02 After trying a few masks, this one is definitely the best so far. I rarely give 5 stars, and in fact this is my first 5 star item that I have used. Its comfortable, inexpensive, and has a down firing exhaust that prevents any condensation on safety glasses. The adjustments for the straps are easy and it has the best detachment mechanism so you aren’t wearing out the adjustments. Cost: ~$20 I am using the ...

I had a serious problem a short while ago with a jointer I just bought, starting unexpectedly, creating serious damages but more importantly it could have cost me my life or at least some very serious injury.You can read the story here:http://lumberjocks.com/topics/40359#reply-477310 Until yesterday morning when helping some one else with this switch, I used only the paddle of the switch that I installed on the existing equipment in my shop.Yesterday I understood how to correctly wire this...

The best Shark Guard yet.

The best Shark Guard yet.

1105 days ago by dbhost | 19 comments »

First things first, some full disclosure. I am a “Frequent Flyer” when it comes to Shark Guards, I am on my 3rd Shark Guard, my first was an early model with a 2” port, the second, a 10.4 (4” port model) and now the SGK-1 with 4” port. Lee Styron, the owner of The Lee Way Workshop, and maker of the Shark Guard is also a long term contributing member of one of the forums I moderate on, and Lee gave me a good discount on this buy due to the above factors. I am howe...

Triton Respirator Exceeds Expectations

Triton Respirator Exceeds Expectations

2412 days ago by MsDebbieP | 34 comments »

Photohttp://www.triton.com.au/product.php?id=29 Cost I purchased this at a wood show last year and I cannot remember how much I paid for it. I know that I did not cringe at the price, knowing the benefits it would bring and that I was very pleased with it once I tried it out. I never regretted the investment. Why did I get it? Because the LumberJocks told me how dangerous woodworking can be, due to breathing in the dust. Because when we got some rough-hewn pine I found that my e...

Rockler Power Air Respirator

Rockler Power Air Respirator

2364 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 36 comments »

I wanted a respirator that I could wear all by itself. I didn’t want to contend with any head gear. I have used regular dust masks over the years, but after wearing them for awhile, it takes a lot more effort to breath.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~After seeing this one in Rockler I ordered one.It’s surprising how that little built in fan helps in your breathing, & it keeps your face cool. The fan is very quiet, & it runs on 4 AA batte...

Back Savor (Needed this a long time ago!)

Back Savor (Needed this a long time ago!)

2150 days ago by Les Hastings | 11 comments »

On my recent trip to the IWF in Atlanta I came across this little jewl. Its made by Southworth. Its an electric hydraulic lift table. Comes fully assembled ready to go, Just plug it in and your set. The lifting capacity is 1500 lbs. with the press of a foot pedal. The top measures 30’ x 60”. Starting at 6” off the floor and rasing to 42” at its tallest position. This is a jewl! I wish I had this a very long time ago. I’ve only been using for a few day...

A Better Mousetrap

A Better Mousetrap

1238 days ago by knotscott | 21 comments »

The Grr-Ripper from Microjig is a hand held holddown/push device intended for use with woodworking machinery as an added line of protection between hands and the cutter. It essentially replaces traditional push sticks and push pads, and can be used for most table saw, router, jointer, shaper, sander, bandsaw, and probably several other operations. It allows good control of the workpiece during close cutting operations with less risk to human flesh. The Grr-Ripper is an elegant and improved so...

Versatile, cost effective LED light

Versatile, cost effective LED light

1015 days ago by WoodworkGuy | 5 comments »

I found a great, cost-effective light at my local home center (Menards). It’s called the hang-on work light by Sentry Industries. It has 27 LED lights and runs on 3 “AAA” batteries (included). It has a magnet on the back, but also has a really nice swivel hook that allows you to mount it virtually everywhere. For $5 it was a great deal. I can see using this light (or buying more) to light other items in the shop or home. I can’t think of a better safety item – a cost efficient...

safety glasses with 3x magnification lens

safety glasses with 3x magnification lens

370 days ago by Holbs | 6 comments »

while cruising through my local woodworking source store, I was in need of safety glasses to use in the work shop to replace my more bulkier goggles. Up popped these guys. What’s interesting is that the sub-lens (whatever they are called?) are 3x magnification. Handy as I am starting to have issues seeing things upclose. Figured, other LJ’s would be interested in something like this as well.Official title: CatEyesSG-AF-MAG3.0Diopter Anti-Fog$6.99 They also have 1.5x and ...

No More Sucking Through a Straw

No More Sucking Through a Straw

359 days ago by HillbillyShooter | 16 comments »

This is a product I’ve been meaning to share for some time. I discovered it back in 2011 after I quit smoking and promptly developed some breathing problems. I tried various paper masks but always felt like I was trying to “suck air through a straw.” I looked at other, bulky masks but passed as being overly restrictive. Finally, I found the “Dust Bee Gone” mask and ordered one. My experience has been great with the breath ability through the material of the mask and the filtering quality...
