“Dear Sir, A few months ago I placed my first order with you and built my very first guitar. Ovangkol back and sides with sitka top. I have been a craftsman for a number of years, rebuilding antique pianos, including making new soundboards and bridges, and decided to try my hand at guitars after buying a Taylor 814ce. The results of my first attempt were surprising, to me and to others. Since I'm a bit "old-school" I built it entirey by hand, no table saw, router, joiner etc. (I did use a driss press!). I have already received requests for custom made guitars, and from a store interested in selling them. It really helped to find quality supplies, all in one place, so I could start this experiment - which may just turn out to be my next and final career. Many Thanks. ps. I have just placed a second order so I can start making a few more......”
Safety supplies are an integral part of every functional shop, large or small. Now you can easily add dust masks or ear plugs to your order, saving a trip to the hardware store.
CAUTION: LMI recommends that a dust mask/respirator be worn when working with wood, as the dust created can be dangerous and/or toxic.
SPERIAN RESPIRATOR DUST MASKS A good dust mask is critical for anyone working with wood. These Sperian masks, SRMB (20 pack) and SRMB5 (5 pack) are NIOSH N95 rated. They have a molded nose bridge for a comfortable fit and a strong, rigid outer shell that prevents mask collapse in high humidity and/or moist environments. The dual welded head straps keep the respirator comfortably on the users face and the woven suspension straps reduce the possibility of breakage and they do not pull or tangle hair.
GLOVES LATEX GLOVES Latex gloves (SLG) are great for most jobs around the shop where you wish to keep your hands (or the object you’re working on) clean. Our gloves are lightly powdered to make them easier to put on. If you are allergic to latex, we recommend our nitrile gloves.
PURPLE NITRILE GLOVES Purple nitrile gloves (SNG) are stronger than normal latex gloves. They are powder free and contain no rubber latex and therefore, are not irritating to the skin. The cuff is beaded to prevent liquids from rolling back onto your skin. The textured finish makes gripping objects easier.
Our lightweight polycarbonate UV safety glasses (SG) aren’t “clunky” like some glasses on the market. The comfortable wrap-around design protects your eyes at all angles: front, side, and top.
E-A-Rsoft™ ear plugs, SEP, have the highest noise reduction rating (NRR 33dB) available. They are made with non-irritating, dermatologically safe, self-adjusting foam that provides excellent attenuation with low pressure.
