Maybe try spitting in your glasses smearing it around a little. It works good on diving goggles.
I would be tempted to drill a couple of larger vent holes on the sides. It wouldn't affect performance.
You know, I have no idea. I only wear them when on my tractor because of the stuff that gets kicked up. At some point I started to react badly to it...the garbage would get stuck in the back of my throat. And "N95" really seems to cover a broad range of specs. I wonder if there aren't N95 filtration standards for different particulates: N95 drywall dust, N95 fiberglass, N95 virus, etc.
The main thing about these is they have a valve for when you exhale. I cannot imagine what you would use for block the odor of decaying flesh. My first thought is to use a stronger odor to cover it, if they sell scents that you put up your nostrils. But I imagine that smell gets in through your mouth as well.
Depending on what you’re doing…maybe.
There are already 4 vents and they are each segmented into 7 sections feeding into a pocket on the inside. All four vents are directional and can’t be accessed from the side or the front by splashes or dust particles.
Since I use a lot of lacquers and oil based stains and paints, my new nemesis since the operation are sprayed particles and the way the vents are built, it would be very hard for any of those particles to get to my eyes.
One has to remember that they’re initially made for lab work but they’re extra sturdy and have the UL stamp on them.
It seems that Von's Do It Yourself thread has become Drifting Into Yonderville.
Guilty as charged but in my defense, instead of putting my new find in the “sales” thread where it wouldn’t necessarily get the exposure it needed, I placed it here since with all DIY projects, one should have all the materials it takes to do the job safely and with the least expense.
Fair enough but I felt the urge for sarcasm and couldn't help myself.
Like my urge to drink black coffee, I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I walk into branches while working outside, especially when wearing a cap. Need goggles if not wearing my glasses. those cheap ones will work. Hate to lose hubby's safety glasses.
Just an update on these two projects.
I haven't repaired the ceiling yet. It's a two person job and my grandson was going to help but he has signed up for a couple sports after school and during the summer.
I took off the flashing because it wasn't doing a good enough job keeping the rain at bay. I've since used some Great Stuff. There hasn't been any water coming through since.
I like the term do it yourself when things are broken at home and I am trying to fix them myself. I loved to do technical work at home. One time I was fixing the electric board, but I failed to do so, and the electricity in the house went off. Then, unfortunately, I called an emergency electrician to fix the problem.
Pssst...you can rent a drywall lifter. At Menards it is not that much.
When I'm trying to fix something at home that is broken, I prefer the phrase "do it yourself." I like working on technological projects at home. Before I entered the bathroom, the wash basin tap abruptly burst, causing water to spill out all over the room. I'm concerned about it and attempting to remedy it, but I didn't succeed right away. I soon had the experienced plumber come out to fix it.
I have been thunkin’ on a project that will probably take me until spring to totally design and do unless I get a bad case of “I’ll do it tomorrow” in which case it’ll be spring of 2025 before completion.
I’ve figured out that doing the wash takes about 15 gal of water and taking a shower takes well, anywhere between 10 and 30 gallons.
I think if I rerouted the drains to go into a holding tank or a few cistern like tanks for watering the lawn and plants during dry times instead of using fresh water to do it, there’d be some fairly large savings in water usage.
Added to that, gray water will probably keep the bugs to a minimum thereby solving two problems.
The only problem I really foresee is that the utility company multiplies water usage by 2.2 and then bills that as sewage which is about the same price as it is per gallon of fresh water.
Some things we can get away with whilst living in the city and some things we can’t. I’ll see how it plays out.
It is a good plan even if it only conserves water. At the farm we have a well and I haven't got all the ideas I have working yet. I tried distilling water from the roof and it tasted like asphalt.
I wonder if the soap and detergents will present an issue when watering plants.
I am on septic and have been thinking of installing a dry well for everything but the toilets. I looked at the Code here and the only thing regulated is the disposal of human waste. The folks near me used to let their grey water drain down the hill into a pool and carried water from the creek. I assume they had an outhouse.
Doing this will relieve stress on my septic tank and give me a place to tie my water softener recharge output to. The investor who I bought this place from had the plumbing for a washing machine installed (and I have one), but it's not vented properly so I go to the laundromat. And I doubt that the washing machine water is good for the septic system, if for no other reason than sheer volume.
What we both want to do will require a bit of plumbing. Do you have a basement or a crawl space?
