Intra Ocular Lens Implants Can Make a World of Difference!

Intra Ocular Lens Implants Can Make a World of Difference!

09-10-2013 03:50 AM by JohnnyB | 16 comments »

So what do lens implants have to do with woodworking? That’s easy to answer with another question. What does good vision have to do with woodworking? At age 69, I have had cataract surgery and lens implants for both eyes, and the improvement in my vision has been amazing. Dang cataracts sneak up on you. I was having trouble reading the graduations on my rules. Things looked hazy, and cleaning my glasses did not help. Driving was becoming problematic. In the shop, sometimes I wasn’...

Eye Wash Cup

Eye Wash Cup

09-09-2013 11:33 PM by Stephenw | 5 comments »

You should always wear safety glasses. If sawdust or dirt gets in an eye, I’ll reach for a Flents glass eye wash cup. 1. Put some water or eye wash solution in the cup. 2. Hold the cup over the affected eye. 3. While holding the eye open, tilt the head back and wait a couple of seconds for the debris to float loose. 4. Tip the head forward. The water and debris will hopefully drain into the cup. 5. Repeat as needed with clean water or eye wash solution.

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...

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 ...

How much would you pay to ensure that you retain all ten digits for life?

How much would you pay to ensure that you retain all ten digits for life?

07-08-2013 11:15 AM by harry1 | 38 comments »

I’m still not over the euphoria caused by my “discovery” of the MUSCLECHUCK and I’m excited in a different way now that I have “discovered” a safety tool that appears to have been around for a long time but neither any of my many friends or of course myself had heard of it. I refer to the GRR-Ripper, now, like all woodworkers I have bought and made countless push sticks and feather boards over the years but accidents still occur. I can honestly say that in ...

Gorilla Grip gloves

Gorilla Grip gloves

03-11-2013 04:35 PM by DouginVa | 10 comments »

I was at the local Home Deposit the other day and as I was walking out I saw these gloves on an end cap, and they caught my eye. They were only $4.95 and were very light weight with a elastic mesh back and a rubber palm and fingers. They dont’ restrict your movement like lates gloves or heavier finishing gloves do. They actually feel like thin soft cottom gloves you see photo processors use, or curators in a fine museam to protect the work from oily skin, etc. I don’t know a...

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...

Ear muff / radio / MP3 player

Ear muff / radio / MP3 player

12-15-2012 04:06 AM by mbs | 7 comments »

I bought these ear muffs from Amazon for $60 after reading a review on LJ’s about another Howard Leight model. I really like them especially when I’m sanding. They protect my hearing and I can listen to music at the same time. They’re also very easy to find in the shop since they’re bright green. I scared myself when I looked in the mirror though because I was wearing a grey and pink dust mask with the bright green ear muffs and glasses. It’s quite a fashion ...

Ridgid Magnetic (MagSwitch) Featherboard

Ridgid Magnetic (MagSwitch) Featherboard

09-22-2012 12:31 AM by ProDrawerCom | 8 comments »

9-21-2012: Other reviews on LumberJocks convinced me that the far less expensive version at Home Depot (the Ridgid brand) was the same product as the yellow MagSwitch. I’m in the middle of rough cutting plywood to build cabinets for my kitchen. Always wanted to try one of these because I believe in feather boards but just never get around to cutting some from wood. I really need them now. And I really need two because I’m cutting big stuff. I usually don’t ask clerks if they have a certain pr...

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...
