I know, he should have taped a small cup over the eye until they got to the hospital and let them remove it but where talking about "accident prevention" not "accident responsiveness" and it would take a very strong willed person to let a bolt (I shouldn't say bolt, I should say machine screw). hang out of your eye, I can only imagine the irritation it would cause. After going to the emergency room and getting checked out he was sent to a Specialist who then performed an 11 HOUR surgery on his eye!!!! He now can only see shadows and has no depth perception in that eye. And this is his dominant eye. He is left handed, left eye dominant and a HUGE bow hunter. So then he had to buy a new bow and learn to shoot right handed because he can hardly see anything out of the eye. I asked him once how long it would have taken to put on a pair of safety glasses and he said "I had them sitting on top of my head, in fact when I went into the emergency room they were trying to figure out how I got something in my eye when I was wearing safety glasses and how the glasses didn't get damaged.

Another piece of info, The Jackson Safety "Nemesis" glasses also come with a neck cord that way if for some reason you have to take the glasses off they are hanging right there around your neck. They also make "anti fog" lens cleaning wipes that work pretty well.
Thats the best little invention ever,I cant even begin to tell you how many times I was looking for my favorite glasses just to find them on the top of my head an hour later...

I'll agree that you can over do it, like those guys who put on glasses just to take a wheel off. But there are some situations where you are just stupid not to. 2 indedents very recently have changed my whole view. The first was when i was painting some wheels in the garage. I did the first coat and went inside while i let it dry. When i came back out i noticed how bad the fumes were and instantly put on a mask, opened the doors, and set up fans to suck the air out. I dont want that crap in my lungs
The other time was while i was changing brake rotors on a dodge pickup. I put my head under so i could see where the bottom bold was on the back and i guess whatever i grabbed for suppor was rusty and 4 nice sized pieces of rust fell in my eyes. I was lucky enough to be able to get them out myself but now i always were glasses while under a car.
Its just not worth it to get hurt because you think protection equipment is uncool or gets in the way. The only thing i HATE is gloves, and i'll only use them around hot surfaces.

I started a thread a couple months ago about wearing gloves. So as a followup on that, I had to go back into the rear hubs on my truck this past week to replace a defective part (a hold down for an e-brake shoe broke) so decided to try the nitrile gloves again - I just can't do it!! I did use them to pack the hub bearings though. Welding, yes. Stacking steel, yes. Automotive paints, yes. Yard work, maybe. Changing the oil, maybe.

i wear gloves all the time. dont like grease or cuts . i learned to wear them when racing. engine was always hot when i had to do something. now it's just habit. either cotton jersey gloves or deerskin gloves . i do not wear the frikin rubber gloves for anything. all they are good for is to dump sweat on the panel.

I think you may be on to something Shine! I have been trying to wear the Nitrile or similar gloves and do quite a bit. But you are so right, they are hard to get off, and very difficult to re-use even if only used for a few minutes and they are in perfect condition. They make you sweat like a friggin pig, will often tear before you are done, they really are a pain in the butt.



But I can put on my "mechanics" gloves and use them without a battle.



You have given me new quest, to find a way to solve this problem of damaging the more expensive mechanics gloves, or just find cheaper ones or use the cheap cotton ones or SOMETHING that I can WANT to put on when working out in the garage.

How about this for an idea, get extra large nitrate gloves and put them over the mechanics gloves so you don't screw up your nice gloves! Why wouldn't that work? I am going to give it a try.

All I know is I am going to figure out how I can do this better than I have been.

Brian

Ah hah, "Jersey" gloves, I didn't have a name for those cotton gloves. Until I googled a photo I had forgotten about them. I had a mentor of mine who used them every single day. What he did was cut off the "cuff" area with a pair of scissors so he could pull them on and off easier.

Thanks Shine, I am going to pick some up.

I bought a few pairs of these radnor gloves from airgas , they are very inexpensive, breath well, and if you get a tight fitting size they work as good or better than mechanic gloves for "feel" of bolts etc. , plus they dont suck up fluids like mechanic gloves
I dont know how well they would work around paint supplies, but you should be wearing nitrile for that

They make me sweat too,especially when the doctor snaps them on and says cough ,talk about a PITA
I use the nitrile for mixing paint and working with glues etc...before I put them on I blow them up like a baloon and they slip right on when you take them off they're inside out so just blow them up again, piece a cake.if they're falling apart buy a better brand,some are complete crap...

Bought 2 pairs of mechanix, one to wear and the other can dry if necessary. For paint I get the nitril from Walmart, 50 pair for 12 bucks. For the big wet stuff or the parts cleaner I use dishwasher gloves. I get a few uses outa them for 3 bucks for 2 pair. I don't mind gettin dirty, but bare hands in solvent for 40 mins changed my mind. Felt like my skin was shrinking. THEN I read the label and crap it says harmful to skin. Lessons learned at the school o hard knocks!

Thanks for your comment. I am 54. I have no prospects for grandkids yet, but am looking forward to the day. Your comment about your 9yo grandson hit home with me. I had my wife pick up some ear plugs at Home Depot. She came home with a bag of 80 pairs.

Better to not hear someone because the plugs are in my ears than to not hear because they were NOT in my ears.

Thank you for sharing. - Supercharged03
