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 ...

Works well and Comfortable

Works well and Comfortable

I got this for my daughter from highlandwoodworking.com as she likes to help in the shop and will cover her ears with her hands everytime a power tool is turned on (very good). I want her to be able to help with jigsaw cuts and sanding and having the shopvac on while working with both so this is a must to have her focused on the work and not on the noise. The ear protection can be lengthened or shortened and the range can accommodate a 3-4 y/o on the short end and a small-medium adult on t...

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...

Floor mats are a good value but not the best I've used

Floor mats are a good value but not the best I've used

12-30-2012 10:23 PM by mbs | 7 comments »

I purchased two sets of floor mats from Rockler because they were on sale and I got free shipping. Each set was $20 for 20 square feet (6 pcs) which is pretty cheap at $1/sq. ft. I place them around my workbench but I don’t put them in front of my table saw because they could be a trip hazard. I’ve used these for years at my other shop so while I only gave them 4 stars, I like the value enough to buy them again. They provide some cushioning to the feet and protect tools that...

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...

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...

Dewalt Protector Smoke Safety Glasses - Got it for $3 but It's now only $2 Grrr.

Do they worth a buck at all? Why did I buy them? Adjectives that might best describe this glasses would be Exceptional Quality and Amazing Value. True to their name, DeWalt’s safety glasses set the standard for quality and value. I got them shipped to my home a couple days ago for $3 but now only $2 and they are more comfortable than safety glasses costing 5 times as much. That’s why I want to suggest you guys to grab one if you are needing this kind of thing. The glasses...
