Just starting out with the "hot stuff" and was wondering what people use for eye protection when silver soldering. Standard clear safety specs or a green tint?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

I use ordinary clear goggles.

Clear should be fine when using just propane but you will want something stronger if using oxy.

I have some prescription-ground work-glasses in tempered glass which cost about half as much as 'ordinary' glasses, they are bifocal (medium and close) and also have shields around the outside. Ask at a 'traditional' opticians for work-wear glasses, the one I used (Dollond & Aitchison) made me an appointment with a work-glasses specialist who sorted me out. Note that you have to specify they need to be tempered glass for silver-soldering, otherwise you get polycarbonate by default.

Looking for suitable shaterproof visor for grinding use. I feel sure this has been discussed before, but have

failed to find the thread. Any advice would be appreciated. Lynne
