    Honolulu,, Hi.

    The hearing protection I really need to step up my game .

    That’s an area I’ve been negligent on as well, even in the shop. I hate the foam type plugs, and find that working in the summer the headphone style can get sweaty.

    Are there better solutions or premium headwear that doesn’t sweat as bad?

    No worries about the sweat, it’s just the poisons leaving our bodies.

    I am also guilty of that too , plus growing up with Pioneer stereos blasting in my ears didn’t help either .

    A Marantz stereo I bought almost 40 years ago still gets blasted occasionally to this day was my eardrum abuser.

    Mine is the 2226B. Or is it B2226 Marantz still working great. Gyro tuning wheel

    Any way back to safety glasses

    So they could not get the lenses out and in the new frames so I’m getting new frames and lenses.
    Now that’s service.

    Importance of proper safety glasses. Wearing prescription glasses with side Shields. Cutting with grinder hot metal bounced off brim of my hard hat and went behind glasses

    Man you got lucky. Could have been much worse.

    Geeze man , lucky it wasn’t worse , I have prescription safety glasses also , but we have to wear another pair of goggles or another pair of glasses that have a foam ridge around the frames that push right up against the face ,
    But if a hot piece of metal or glass get in the foam area , could make it worse.
    How’s your eye , hopefully nothing long term affected

    Wow…very lucky! I wear the same kind and have not thought about stuff getting behind the glasses. I suppose a full shield would help with the head band to prevent an opening at the top. I ALWAYS wear hearing and eye protection….always. Just not worth the risk.

    yikes. I wear glasses normally so I rarely put on additional safety glasses because I didn’t think there is a high likelihood of debris flying down from above below or the sides. This makes me think this through again.

    My close call was prying a deeply embedded nail off a stud with a long pry bar and the nail finally came off flying straight at my face with such a strong impact it knocked my glasses off my face.
