Shop Tip #094

At our shop, we call 'em "ears" and "eyes." Their proper industrial names are "safety glasses" and "hearing protectors," and we use them all the time. In particular, these David Clark headsets are very comfortable to wear for extended periods. If you're a regular wearer of eyeglasses, you'll appreciate the soft cushions that don't cram the glases frame into your skull.

Not too much to say here, except WEAR THEM. Eye injuries are instantaneous, obvious and terrible. Hearing loss is cumulative, and we don't want to end up later on asking everyone to repeat what they say to us, "Eh? Speak up!"
