Safety Goggles and Dust Masksstryker safety goggles

So if you aren't about protecting their tools, how about protecting the machinist? Every shop requires the use of safety equipment, so make sure they are using the best. Looking for eye protection?

That means it can be used over and over again. Like the Stryker goggles go with masks, this mask is made to work with goggles.
