Safety glasses

Shop safety is an ongoing issue, even with relatively safe tools like the scroll saw.  While I'm vigilant about wearing a dust mask and hearing protection, I must admit that I've been careless at times with eye protection, especially when the risk seemed minimal.

Recently, I've had some eye surgery, which upped the ante a bit, and made me realize that you never know when an accident might happen, and that I'd better clean up my act before getting into trouble.

I knew that reading glasses didn't offer sufficient protection, but I wasn't sure what options were available, especially those that wouldn't break the bank.  I asked around to find out what other people use, and learned that DeWalt, as well as some other companies, make bifocal safety glasses in different strengths, at minimal cost.

I ordered a pair of DeWalts, since I've used their regular safety glasses successfully.  I'm new to bifocals, but the adjustment period was pretty quick, and I thought it couldn't hurt to get the word out.

Seeing, breathing, and hearing are pretty important, and worth protecting, even if it's a nuisance at times!
