    Purchased this product just about a year ago.

    One thing that I did not like was that it did not have the ratchet mechanism to tighten the head strap, instead it had the style of hole and button that you find on cheap ‘one size fits all’ hat.

    The second thing I did not like is that it did not like to stay up and out of the way when you wanted to get a clean look at something, and there was no way to increase the stay up tension. You would lift the shield and it always flopped back down unless you tilted it all the way up, but then one size fits all strap was not strong enough to keep it on your head.

    Today I went out into my shop and the head band had split in two around one of the front pivot bushings. It failed just sitting on the bench, well at least it did not pop off in the middle of doing some work.

    I’m notoriously cautious when working with caustic and biological fluids, but no matter how careful you are sometimes a little splatter is bound to come your way. With this professional faceshield on, I can finish my “work”, slip it into a extra-large Hefty bag with my other “keep” supplies, and be in and out in a matter of minutes. Plus the ability to flip it up lets me examine my work unimpeded, and if I have to do a touch-up it’s just a matter of flipping it back down again. It’s been a phenomenal time-saver in a line of work where efficiency is literally a matter of life-and-death.

    However, I’ve found that the 1/2″ adjustment increments mean I can either have a secure faceshield and a migraine, or a comfortable if tenuous faceshield and a stress headache – if it had a buckle instead of the hole-based headband, it would’ve earned two more stars. You get what you pay for, I suppose.

    Also, combined with my Ansell 56-512 Chemical Resistant Black Hycar Nitrile Lab Apron with Cotton Backing, 35″ X 45″, I can pull off a hell of a Dexter costume at a moment’s notice.

    Wow you still have lots of space you lucky dog. I know you want to get
    things done but take your time and get it right the first time.

    @Strykercom1 I use a modified Powermatic PM2000. Its a solid performer for
    sure. I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the big names these days
    though.

  5. The Wood Whisperer

    @cyberyiyo Oh that’s one major exception. I prefer to pretend like that
    line of tools doesn’t exist. I was referring to “real” Jet tools. ?

    @TheWoodWhisperer “calibrating it with a sledge hammer” lol! thanks for the
    input

  7. The Wood Whisperer

    Unfortunately neither am I. Never really had to deal with that. Might be a
    good question for a woodworking forum.

    I envy your dust collection….Great work!

    I’m not a huge fan of the rollers they used. Those our just cheap movers
    you can buy anywhere. I like to build my own according to what I’m moving
    so I have full support. I put felt or carpet with pad to make sure things
    have extra cushion. Being a moving company I’m surprised they didn’t have
    any advanced technique and just used mostly brute power instead. I’m always
    about advancing and making things easier in my profession but as long as
    nothing damaged I’m happy the move went good.

    220? dont you bean 240?

    I went with white nylon spec grade plugs in my shop with diamond plate
    covers. I used stainless steel covers for any that diamond plate was not
    available or too expensive. Much harder to accidentally break them.

  14. The Wood Whisperer

    @ht448 no I meant 220. But yes I realize 240v is correct but I, and most
    woodworkers, say 220v simply because our tools are sold to us as 220v
    tools. I realize its a misnomer, but its force of habit at this point.
