    I like the idea of a full face mask. It might seem like overkill but I remember from my scuba days that the full mask was always way more comfortable. Agreed to MDF it is something I would try. I hate working with that stuff because of the dust, when I was taking up particle board last week it was similar, awful stuff for the lungs.

    It definitely would keep out MDF dust and you don’t have to hassle with cleaning off your face after a lot of cutting.

    I think you can get one for around a hundred bucks and they take the standard 3m filter cartridges like my half face mask.

    protective goggles helps to prevent rubbing of the eyes when asleep and to reduce dry eyes. Goggles price depends upon prescription and brand.

    This is a ‘gotta get in the habit’ topic for me.
    I had some plastic safety goggles years ago. What a joke. Wore them once.
    Recently I bought a full face shield and some DeWalt safety glasses.
    So, what happens? I cut a vertical blind header rail, get a piece of aluminum right in my eye, then I say to myself, ‘duh, you have safety glasses!’
    Next time I used the full face shield.

    I’m working on getting in the habit of reaching for the eye protection, but that’s a slow learn for me.

    I have hepa masks, gloves of all sorts and I only remember them AFTER I finish the job. I’m awful about that. I think I’ll make a special shelf next to my saws specifically for these safety items so I’ll see them right away when I get ready to do a job.

    Thanks for posting this topic, Jason. It’s an important reminder to me to be safe.

    After reading this topic, I got motivated. Here’s what I did today and I hope it helps me to remember to use the safety stuff:

    Good job, Pat. I have used fulll shields before, especially if turning something on the lathe.

    Not safety, but how do you like the Kreg jig I see hanging back there?

    I really really need to get another face shield, All I’ve been using lately is goggles. Everytime I use the bench grinder or the 4 1/2″ angle grinder I wish I had a face shield too. Y’all know it’s best to wear both I hope, Even with a face shield you should still wear goggles or at least safety glasses. A face shield alone isn’t full protection

    No I didn’t know that. I appreciate that advice, Boyd.

    I love to see the safety equipment right by the tool that you will use it with. I keep all of my shop safety right next to the router table or in the garage hanging where I grab power from. If its an inconvenience to be safe then people get hurt.

    Great point about the face shield, I need to pick one up for grinding and sharpening.

    It’s funny how they rigged that trim gun so it would shot like that or they could never had made that video. In real life the gun would need to be pressed ageist the eye glasses to shoot and shot whoever does that need a nail in the eye! I think all this PPE stuff just takes away from ones own sense of responsibility. I work in a world where there is no NO misses step or I will go down and be hurt so I stay reasonable for my self.

    I use the cheap $3 pair of uvex i alway keep a pair of tinted and a pair of clear on my dashboard and a new pair in an hold plastic screw case in my tool box for when i loose one or scratch it too much.

    For anyone who has a hard time finding their eye safety and their hearing protection… This seems like an interesting combo to handle that issue 🙂

    That is interesting, John. I prefer the foam inserts and I now wear prescription safety glasses with side shields.

    too bulky for my liking. You need to find something that’s comfortable. Like 110% comfortable, if not you don’t use it.
