    Re: safety glasses

    Try a full face shield. I like it much better than glasses for most stuff. It's especially good when working under the rig. With glasses, a face full of dirt falling from under the rig somewhere just sucks. With a face shield you hardly notice it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    cool thanks...I had to hold my eye closed for 2 hours last night, the debris was embedded on the inside of my eyelid and if I allowed my eye to move it would carve away at it... /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    I have a pair of the WileyX's that work bought for me. Interchangeable lenses from tinted to clear (great for the trail) with an optional strap that does great for holding them in place. They fit nice and snug around the face with a little cushion.

    I am very picky when it comes to my eyes so have multiple pair around the shop and have found these to be the best so far. Pretty pricey but worth it to me.

    I have a fullface that always breaks when I flip it back up. Then I have to fix it, then put it down again and start grinding again, then take a break, lift it up, and it breaks again /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I'm a fan of the Boas. Here's a good link for some. As a safety manager, this is about the only ones I recomend. I've gotten to the point that I wear them for sunglasses. They are even lighter than anyothers that I've worn. They also have some that have rubber gripping bows that work very well. I'd highly suggest/recommened these.
