    <P>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</P>

    <P>No I didn’t know that. I appreciate that advice, Boyd. </P>

    Was in a job that under some circumstances required (safety) glasses, goggles, AND a face shield to prevent getting splashed in the face. When you stuck your arms straight out, it would push the face shield up and it would start to come off the back of your head. By then you were past the ‘point of no return’. When I pointed out that the same rule would apply if required to wear an SCBA, the shield part of the rule was dropped. A good idea that wasn’t thought out out and tried.

    I wear safety glasses when I cut metal or brick but not for wood

    I like to wear safety glasses when ever I cut anything.

    Spitting on your glasses works, same thing scuba divers do. Helps cut the fog more than say just wiping them with your sleeve.

    All I ever wear is the 3m safety sunglasses.

    Interesting idea, I guess it works for Scuba? I also heard that if you have glass lenses you can burn them with a lighter to reduce fog. Don’t try it unless its on a pair you don’t care about.

    Spitting on them is gross!

    I thought this might be a fun thread revival: Stuart has a post on another potential use for safety glasses / has a humorous take paralleling tool safety and changing a diaper…

    I use a pair of Oakley M-Frames for my safety glasses. I can swap out he lenses for clear or tinted. Of course they are not cheap but how much are your eyes worth.

    The pair already saved my eyes. I remember it well as I just put in a brand new Ice Iridium lens and was burning weeds in my driveway. Guess I held my torch a little too long in one spot and the concrete exploded sending small fragments up hitting my glasses. It happened so fast I didn’t have any time to blink. The fragments hit my Oakleys right where my eye was. In fact the force was so hard it left powder marks outward from where it hit and I felt it on the surrounding area on my face. I was stunned and when I took it off there was a nice divots on the lens and outward marks from the concrete piece exploding on the lens. If I weren’t wearing them I would surely have lost my eyesight in that eye.

    I have kept and still use that lens outdoors to remind me how important safety glasses are.

    The best $80 I spent on any safety equipment.

    I use Oakley eyeglass cleaner on all my glasses.

    Oakley, Lenscrafters and Sunglass Hut are all owned by the same company and if you buy a sunglass cleaning kit from them, you get free refills for life. Just bring the bottles back and they will refill them free.

    I love my Oakley glasses I used to have a pair that I used as safety glasses. The lenses were brownish not too tinted. I used them all the time and they did really well until I ran them over with a skid loader on accident.

    As far as I know the Oakley are not Z87 rated and not safety glasses when the OSHA or safety guy walks up.

    Military version so maybe that’s why. None of my other Oakley says Z87 on it.

    i broke down 10 days ago and ordered prescription saftey glasses from sears optical. im a little surprised though they havent come in yet. ive ordered 90% of my glasses from sears and they usually take 4-7 days to come in.. maybe it has something to do with their lab being really busy right now

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    Funny, I didn’t know about the glass lenses. Fogged glasses is the worst. Production stopper.
