safety glasses with 3x magnification lens

safety glasses with 3x magnification lens

08-17-2013 12:35 AM 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

08-27-2013 10:08 PM 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...

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

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 ...

Great solution for some of us older folk!

Great solution for some of us older folk!

08-05-2014 07:05 PM by timbertailor | 12 comments »

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...

Nitrile With the Stretch of Latex

Nitrile With the Stretch of Latex

10-25-2014 01:21 AM by JAAune | 11 comments »

At the shop we’ve been using nitrile gloves for many years in finishing or epoxy operations. For some time they were purchased from Lowes but they were flimsy and sold in $9 bags of 15 (for one-armed woodworkers?). Later we discovered Gemplers and their 8 and 4 mil gloves and were satisfied with those. They held up well and could often be used a couple times before tossing. We tried discounted gloves from Woodcraft but those were easy to tear and weren’t that much cheaper. ...

Magswitch Featherboard - A dream to use

Magswitch Featherboard - A dream to use

01-25-2008 01:26 AM by Grumpy | 13 comments »

I had been eyeing off the Magswitch featherboard in magazines for some time and thought what a great invention it was. I don’t really understand how you can turn a magnet on and off , other than an electro magnet, simply by turning a knob but you can with the Magswitch. If anybody knows how it is done I would like to hear about it.I purchased the 30mm Magswitch Pro2 this week. It consists of two powerful earth magnets associated with a featherboard in a type of durable plastic molding. An opt...

Music to my ears...

Music to my ears...

03-23-2008 02:47 PM by RobH | 12 comments »

I thought I would post this because I am as happy as a pig in mud when I am using these things. They perform wonderfully. I like ear muffs better than in-ear style hearing protection. Before I bought these I used a pair of ear muffs with ear bud headphones to listen to my MP3 player. Since my MP3 player has no AM/FM radio option, I often missed that. Well, as always happens, one of the boys got their hand on my old headphones and broke them. When I went to pick up more, I saw these....

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)

05-07-2014 02:30 AM by paxorion | 16 comments »

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...

the earmuffs every woodworker should have

the earmuffs every woodworker should have

05-24-2008 11:27 AM by moshel | 14 comments »

Got these for my B-day from my wife. I guess that she was getting tired of having to enter the workshop and kick me while i was working to attract my attention.The earmuff are class 5 with radio and active surround noise filtering. in simple words, you can work with the earmuffs and still hear what you are doing, but completely protect your hearing. I have worked with them for a week now and they are terrific. they are so good that I actually use them also in the house to hear radio. the earm...
