Good Safety Glasses

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...

Bose Hearing protection

Bose Hearing protection

10-15-2015 01:25 PM by dbray45 | 27 comments »

I work in IT as a primary source of income and can spend a lot of time in the data center. I have a very nice set of Peltor Optime 105 ear muffs and it was I that brought them into the work place originally because I use them at home when running the power equipment – I rate these at 5 stars as well. A few months ago, I have noticed a change to my hearing, never a good thing because slow degradation does not trigger a change in the brain. I got tested and found that I have lost a ...

Not what you expect

Not what you expect

10-29-2015 12:50 PM by fuigb | 16 comments »

These googles are presented by Lee Valley as combing function and form: comprehensive eye protection (though “not certified for industrial use”) and a “cool retro look.” The look IS cool, if that is at all important, and the youngsters in your life are sure to point out that you resemble a Minion from the kids’ movie Despicable Me. Giving the children a laugh is about as much satisfaction as you can expect from these googles. I’m a hobbyist, an evening...

Triton: Works and definitely worth the money - though can be hard to find.

Triton: Works and definitely worth the money - though can be hard to find.

I had read about various enclosed-air systems while setting up my shop. I knew I wanted one because I haven’t yet got a proper dust collection system in place and didn’t want to wait to do anything until I had one. I liked the look of the Triton Tools Power Respirator and read some positive reviews so I decided to get one. That was easier said than done. Many reviews are a few years old and the companies mentioned in them no longer sell the unit. One place I saw online has ...

Jam to your tunes while safe from yuor machinery whine!

Jam to your tunes while safe from yuor machinery whine!

This is a tool I use all the time! My bandsaw is notorious for its high decibel whine when I use it, and coupled with the dust collection, that means it gets down right unbearable for my ears! These protect my ears, while allowing me to rock on or country out while I use my tools! They really protect me from the sound of my pneumatic full-head nailer! The on/off/volume control is set intuitively on the right ear. The only problem is that the radio tuner is non-digital, extending knob a...

Worth Every Penny

I gotta have my music. In fact, for some reason I concentrate better when I have music going than when I don’t. However, with the scream of power tools, it can get lost. Not only that, but something has to help pass the time when sanding! Well, the Work Tune does the job just fine. I picked this one up for $50 from Lowe’s with some Christmas money, and I’m thrilled with it. First the hearing protection: It works great. I can hear the scream of the machines, but n...

Great... but...

Great... but...

10-16-2009 08:41 PM by greggr | 12 comments »

I bought a pair of these a few months ago after checking with my supervisor for approval. They work great, especially the Mp3 feature. With an el-cheapo generic Mp3 they will play for about 10 hours until the Mp3 battery needs a recharge. The sound is excellent and blocks out most of the surrounding noise. Herein lies the “but”. Unfortunately my employer has reversed on approval after several other people started using the same unit. Their reasoning (and I guess I agree r...

Hearing protection with tunes

Hearing protection with tunes

Well, the earmuffs I used for hearing protection finally broke and it was time to replace them. I decided to go with the worktunes earmuffs because I wasn’t able to hear my radio once I turned on my equipment. Well, they work great! The earmuffs really drown out the noise from the tablesaw and jointer and you really don’t need to have the radio on high to hear the music through the earmuffs. This particular model I bought allows you to plug in your MP3 player. The only issue ...

I forget that I am wearing them.

I picked up these at the local Lowes this past weekend. I needed something other then the little foam things you roll up and stick in you ear as I was going to use an medium sized electric demo hammer to chip up the porcelain floor tile in a bathroom I am redoing. Overall the sound deadening ability is very good. I would guess they would work fine in most applications. TV at a normal level is barely audible with them on. Now using an angle grinder is not so annoying.The radio reception...

Pusher System

Pusher System

Recently I played a three way game of catch with my table saw and a small piece of maple plywood. As a result I attempted to catch a 250 MPH plywood line drive with my right thigh. After ensuring my right leg was still attached to the rest of body I decided I needed a little more safety and purchased the GRR-Ripper® precision pusher system. It’s purpose is to serve as a virtual movable blade guard that you hold, rather than a blade guard that is affixed to the back of the table saw...
