|SAFETY GLASSES come FIRST !|
I know it sounds so redundant , But it is true. When cutting pvd pipe or pvc sheet with a jig saw, Safety Glasses are a Must. What really happens, is that "when" one cuts with a jig saw, the blade actually cuts on the up stroke. Therefore, all the particles are thrown "upwards" instead of downwards. Where upwards ?
Up towards your EYES ! You are down there close, looking at your lines, particles flying everywhere and all of a sudden .......... Bing , In Your Eye !
When it first happened to me, I reacted like all men ....... just brushed it off. When I went to doctor to get the small particle out, I learn different.
Doctors can be expensive ! Emergency rooms can be expensive !
I am 68, retired, and on Medicare ............. had that same thing happen a few years prior, when I had a $5,000 deductible .......... it would have really hurt !
Notice the pattern under the Safety Glasses in the picture ? That is the pattern for an Eagle.
One learns "how" to make patterns on my first CD titled: How to Make PVC Birds (Beginners CD)
The Eagle is the biggest selling of the Flying Birds. In prior, I have pointed out that I could make nothing but Eagles for the rest of my life. The orders just keep coming...........
Other news: Since I have added my email address to the blog, I am getting lots of comments. Some spam, (as expected), but mostly good stuff. Working on the Pink Flamingo between making more Eagles.
