At work we're required to wear double eye protection whenever we're doing that creates flying debris, usually safety glasses and a face shield. If we're working with chemicals then it's goggles and a face shield. It seems like overkill but they enforce it for a reason...

Safety glasses aren't as stupid looking as they were back in high school machine shop class. A friend of mine is the safety engineer at work and he'll come up with a new style of safety glasses to try out. He is kind enough to share them with me so I can try them out at home. His motto is Be Safe at Work and Home. :D

I have taken to wearing ear plugs when grinding and torching as well . Got a slag nugget in the ear while torching under the car . Man that hurt for a long time ,your ear is a nice moist place for infection to set in and it did . I suffered for a month with it.

Needless to say have lost some hearing .Now I'm extra careful

Stroker56,
Very good point. I always forget about that until a hot bb drops down the ole ear canal. Been fortunate not to have an ear infection to go with it.

The worst headache I ever had was from having a sliver of metal removed from my eye. I was wearing my safety glasses and grinding on an old grill guard. I felt it hit my eye and thought I had gotten it out. The next day it was still bothering me so I went to the eye doctor. Sure enough, it was a sliver of metal. He used this wierd contraption that was like a big fat pencil with a sharp needle sticking out the end and dug it out of my eye. He said it went through the third layer of my cornea and was very close to my pupil. I had to wear a medicated contact for a day or two after that and I had the worst headache for a while that I have ever had. I have some scar tissue in my eye from that incident. For the longest time, my vision would be slightly blurred in that eye when I was in dimly lit areas. I think this is because the pupil would dialate and the scar tissue would show up in my vision. It isn't bad now. However, I have had my eyes examined a few times since, and every eye Dr. said that they can see the scar tissue in that eye. Even though I was wearing my safety glasses at the time, I now wear a face shield as well as the safety glasses together. I don't want to have to go through that again. :drunk:

When I think of things in the eye, this is a classic. David Bowie on stage with a lollipop in his eye that was thrown by a fan.

I believe underwire brassieres were invented just prior to WWII by Howard Hughes for use by Jane Russell in the classic film "The Outlaw". They couldn't find any undergarment to satisfactorily display Ms. Russell's gazongos in the hayloft scene so he took a few minutes and came up with the modern staple of the bra business for the next 60 years or so, well heck even today.

This is what I wear at work. Harley Davidson safety glasses. What I like about them is that they wrap around the sides somewhat. And they are stylish. A little more costly at $14.00 a pair but they are comfortable and stylish. So if you have to wear them at work, get something that you like and fits well.

Kevin,

My big gripe is my safety glasses, goggles, and face shield all get scratched up so easily that they become difficult to see through. What are those Harley lenses made of and do they hold up to a lot of grinding dust and debris?
