Last time we looked at some of the gear that can protect you on your projects around the house. Here’s more.
If you’re working with loud equipment, such as saws and planers, for an extended period of time, some kind of ear protection is in order. This can be as simple as earplugs or as complete as specially designed ear muffs.
These not only protect your regular clothing from spills and tears, but they help to eliminate the chance of injury from everyday loose clothing. A shirt sleeve caught up in a saw can have deadly consequences.
Once you’ve kneeled on a concrete floor for more than a few moments, you’ll appreciate the benefits of these.
Back support devices
These can mean the difference between being able to enjoy your hard work after its done or stretching out on the bed in pain.
It’s not just handy and convenient â€“ and an essential fashion item if you want to look look like a pro. It can be a real safety device. Carrying nails and tools in a belt saves you multiple trips up and down ladders, for example, and frees your hands for other things â€“ such as holding on to the ladder rungs.
