I absolutely believe in the Trend concept. I know it is right. I know I would give up woodworking before I would wear it. I seriously considered purchasing one, however, I did not because it isn't the right shape for a door stop.
My neck and head revolt when I get very much on them. Yes, I do wear a 1/2 face mask with N-95 cannisters. Yes, I wear my safety glasses and Yes I wear ear protection but they do not begin to add up to the weight and confinement of a Trend. I DO ENCOURAGE the rest of you to wear a Trend or similar. As I told Myrna, an excellent driver, when I taught her to drive, "Don't do as I do. Do as I say." Wear the protection!!!
First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
