My magnifying safety glasses broke.  I don't remember where I got them.  They were 1.25 magnification.  Where do you folks buy yours?  Brand recommendations?  I use 1.25 readers but don't want to use plain safety glasses over them.  Thank You.

I have prescription safety glasses, but Woodcraft carries "generic" magnifying glasses...however lowest I see on their site is 1.5 diopter. 

Same with Rockler;

Peachtree Woodworking shows  full lens 1.25 magnification  or bi-foc;a sty;e like Woodcraft & Rockler with 1/5 diopter

Try Northern tools.  I know I have seen some at 1.25 on the carousel in the front of the store close to me.

About the same here.  No glasses then suddenly needed bifocals at 46.  :JawDrop:

Yeah, some days not fun at all.  And of course I am the smallest guy in the shop so I get those jobs.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
