DIY : Safety first! – Maker Hacks – Medium
I got to try out my new safety equipment!
First are my bluetooth ear protection. Yes, ear protection where I can listen to music or even take calls. Nerdy AND safe.
Next are my lightweight steel toed boots. They look like cross/hiking shoes, but have toe armour and are more hard wearing than usual.
Along with my eye protection and breathing filter mask I am ready for the maker space 🙂
You might wonder if it is necessary.
Turns out my right ear is getting damaged by the loud metal tools such as the lathe and CNC, and my lungs are starting to burn. Along with being clumsy and often dropping things, you can’t be too careful.
