may have an image in their head of the solitary man and his chisel, however the modern craft has come on leaps and bounds. Of course even a humble chisel can cause injury, but the emergence of power tools and machinery has made it especially important to keep oneself protected whilst woodturning.
Your eyesight and hearing are two of your most precious faculties, but they are put at significant risk by such customary woodturning activities as turning, sanding, sharpening and knocking in nails, many of these
tasks being done with noisy tools and machinery. Why take the risk? Here at The ToolPost, we've thought of everything for the benefit of our amateur and professional woodturning customers alike, sourcing great eye and
ear protection from some of the most reputable manufacturers. They're well-priced, too, so you really do have no excuse not to keep yourself safe.
Our complete selection of visors, glasses and goggles, for instance,
includes a Panorama Faceshield 8" deep polycarbonate visor with protective edge binding and black polycarbonate brow shield. Or why not invest in a pair of our Bolle Attack Safety Goggles, with their anti-mist and
scratch lens and soft compression face seal for extra comfort? We also stock the likes of Bolle Galaxy safety spectacles with built-in LED lights, as well as Keep-Safe Hunter safety spectacles that have been designed to
be worn over prescription glasses.
But auditory (ear) protection is another major priority of ours here at The ToolPost, as shown by our offering of the specialist manufacturer E.A.R.'s blue-corded luminous yellow
'Soft Neon' earplugs, which many prefer in the workshop given how much harder they are to lose than ear muffs. They are easy to insert and comfortable to wear.
Or perhaps what you really need is the true all-day
protection that the Keep Safe Ear Muffs offer? These defenders are mounted on a sturdy headband and incorporate an acoustic foam fill, in addition to being kitemarked to BS EN352-1, which assures you of their quality
and performance. Treat them sensibly, and you'll be using them for years to shield your ears from that nuisance noise.
What could be more valuable than your sight and hearing? With The ToolPost's complete eye and ear
protection range, you can have peace of mind about both while concentrating on your many woodturning endeavours.
