Good advice, I'm pretty bad at following it though. I should have had eye protection on today when I was running a chainsaw but it was raining and I just went ahead without it although it's stupid.

Good advice! I've always been bad about wearing hearing protection and don't wear a respirator near as often as I should. This is a good reminder, like you said "It adds up". Thanks!

lol,, I need a air ride or hyd. creeper.. one that can be a foot or so off the ground and then lowered to the weeds to get under a car..
for many reasons, but mostly, gettting up from that low without rolling out of it first is a p.i.t.a. and 2nd, reaching stuff on a 4x4 while on one ,doesn't always work..

Being I am old and senile it took me a few minutes to figure out your post was more than a photo. For us less web savvy guys, maybe post click image for video or something similar, thx.

I have used a head light - looks dorky, but works well - also good for working under the dash!

Same for me, I sat and looked at the photo trying to figure out what the TIPS where that I wasn't seeing. Scrolled down and saw someone mentioned it was a good video....Ah ha, now I got it!

Brian, shouldn't you have had your hearing protection on when you dumped all those coins on the creeper....they were pretty loud

That's why you shouldn't have a mirror in the shop, then you won't know how dorky you look, or care!!

I wear them while using most any air tool, even ratchets. While doing hammer and dolly work on a large project, and certainly with any grinder or sander. I use one with a radio in it while mowing the lawn.
