Please review the Disclaimer Notice page.

Always wear ANSI (Z87.1) safety approved eye protection during machine & tool use.
Refer to the Material
Safety Data Sheet (MSDS), for info regarding the properties of a particular material.

Full-face Visor


Safety Glasses

Note the important protective side shields.

Flip-down Magnifiers


Flip-down magnifier with two integral lights.


Multiple magnifying lenses. The inner element is hinged & spring-loaded.

Shields

Small, low, 1/16" thick, polycarbonate chip shield. The aluminum base has five glued-in magnets.


When re-clamping parts between machining operations it is essential to remove swarf. 
Otherwise, accuracy can be affected & debris pressed into the part may cause damage. 

Breathing Filter

Inhaling metal dust from grinding tools bits is very hazardous. See the appropriate MSDS.

Hearing Protection

Leather Gloves

Anti-fatigue Mats

Anti-fatigue matting can really help with long-term standing comfort & reduce injury.
These mats are 9/16" thick closed-cell foam with a PVC anti-slip surface & non-tripping beveled edges.
Swarf does not embed into the hard smooth PVC surface like it would with soft matting making clean-up easy.

Outlets

20A 110VAC grounded outlets provide safe, adequate power for my equipment. The outlet circuits use
separate breakers from the overhead lights so they do not flicker when various machines are turned ON.

Shop Vacuum

Good for removing swarf, this particular model has an effective exhaust muffler. A clean shop is a safer shop.

Macie the Golden Retriever

Besides, I don't want Macie, my Golden Retriever, to get into any swarf. ☻
This is at sunrise in winter. She's a big girl being 24" at the withers & weighing 75-lbs.
