Michael Cochran Posted February 21, 2017 Share Posted February 21, 2017 After my recent eye injury we are discussing in another topic I have decided I need to up my PPE all the way around. I currently use disposable earplugs, a disposable dust mask, less than ideal eye wear, leather welding gloves, and general purpose high cuff cloth gloves (I only use when I absolutely have to have gloves and don't want/need to use my welding gloves). I also have a full face autodarkening helmet when it comes time for welding projects. I just bought myself a new pair of soft sided goggles but will be pursuing prescription safety glasses. I have been looking at respirators from various manufacturers and have no idea what I actually need since the shop is such a multi use area (welding, grinding, forging, and occasional woodworking projects including cutting, sanding, and staining). I'd like to get me some ear protection that I'm not going to be throwing away all the time. I will be doing plenty more reading and research as I can on the various equipment but would love to hear input from those here whom actually use it and can give good reviews on an item. When I say 'good reviews' I mean I want to know what to avoid as much as what would be good. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
