More years ago then I would like to admit I was a civilian technician for the United States Army.

It was required that we wear the safety glasses they provided Now I had been soldering for several years and I did it with out wearing glasses and I never got hot solder in my eyes. Oh well rules are rules so when at work I wore them, while at work.

Shortly after acquiring this job with that strange requirement I purchased a kit

Heathkit HW-100

from Heathkit. Some soldering required. You have probably already guessed what happened and to this day I am not sure how I flipped that piece of solder into my eye.

As ham radio operators many of us enjoy working on our equipment or building something that requires soldering. Just a little caution could save you from a lot of pain and maybe even sight in one of your eyes.

This caution also applies to when you are spraying contact cleaner or using any

At least he can see.

kind of cleaner also when cutting wires, drilling, grinding, or any other activity that could result in small flying objects.
