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...

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

Save your money and buy something else. It took me 3 pairs (two pictured), at almost $15 each, to learn my lesson. 1 Star is too high

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...

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 ...

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 ...

Be safer, retrofil this switch on your older equipment

Be safer, retrofil this switch on your older equipment

08-15-2012 12:26 PM by b2rtch | 20 comments »

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...

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.

09-11-2010 10:03 PM by Elizabeth | 13 comments »

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 ...

Versatile, cost effective LED light

Versatile, cost effective LED light

11-10-2011 04:51 PM 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...

Protect Your Ears

Protect Your Ears

10-31-2008 02:26 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 10 comments »

Recently one my posts came up where I talked about ZEM hearing protection. At the time I was amazing at how well they worked. It’s been over a year now of using them, and I won’t use anything else now. They are very comfortable to wear, for long periods if needed. They are lightweight and don’t have to go “deep” into the ear canal. The foam earpieces just enter the outside of the ear canal. They really don’t feel like they are in your ear, like other earplugs. I’m not sure if I can r...
