Thanks, Ironworker. Found some good stuff there. Never even knew there was such a thing as "dual-bifocal lenses". That might be just the ticket for different angles of viewing the workpiece.

You have to start somewhere to get to the middle of nowhere.

Thanks, but my rig is just a Prince among Kings. You folks gave me the answers to build it!

i had no idea when i started this that this much info would be shared. thanks very much guys. i hope others will look at this and take it somewhat seriously. i've never been a huge fan of safety glasses or shields but i guess this made me think about it that much more. metal in the eye just plain sucks.

I use the wrap arounds and full face shield in most applications and have found it to work best for me. Oh and safety glasses under the welding hood also.

I have some from work that I really like, i'll have to get the name but the have a little rubber gasket that fits to your face kinda like some swimming goggles. Very good protection and I can't recall a moment where anything got in my eye since wearing them.

I'm a Wiley X fan. Got a pair prior to going to Iraq and still have them after 5 years and acquired a second pair. Like any other brand I would go somewhere you can try them on vice buying online.

I too like the wiley X brand after using them in the desert. At work we are given a choice between 3 types. a regular pair, a rubber sealed version with a strap and a rubber seal with arms. Anytime i am using equipment that puts things into the air I preferr the rubber style with arms. The strap style fogs up quickly and the regular ones dont do squat to stop airporn particles/small shards.

Only safety glasses for me. That is something to be considered. I might have to look into a full face shield.
