  • Safety Glasses and dust

    I wear glasses while cutting on the scroll saw and they have plastic lenses. While cutting with or without a fan on the fine dust collects on the lenses, do to static electricity. Does anyone have a simple method of preventing this from happening?

    I have used rainx and I have also tried the trick of using shaving cream to wipe my shop glasses with. I have not had a lot of success I still get some dust but it is better after words with both ideas. I have not tried waxing my shop lenses yet...but the static goes away with both of the other tips.

        I have to grab my air hose once in a while and blow the dust off my glasses.

        It doesn't correct the problem but it is a quick way to get the dust off for

        a while. Don't they make some kind of anti-static wipe cloth that would

        work

          I have tried the blow gun form the compressor. You are right it works but I would like to prevent the problem to begin with if I could.... By the tme I notice it I can barely see the lines...

            You could try some leftover dryer sheets.....

              Don't laugh. That trick works well on the full face mask I use when turning on the lathe.

                I went to my local Walmart eye doctor and got some GLASS safety glasses with bifocals and plain glass on top for $108. I ware them all the time and get very little dust sticking on them.

                    Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                    I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                    Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                    That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

                    Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
