Mr. Denny, I bought that mask at a Safety Supply Store in Fourchon (pronounced Foo-Shawn), LA, last year.  Something that Functional, and reasonably priced, I wonder WHY ON EARTH are they so uncommon?!  I think I paid $12-15 for it.

I dipped the tip of my little finger in the top of a melt last week, adding more scraps...first time ever getting that "close" to losing skin by molten plastic.  With extreme haste, I beat my fingers on my shirt as-though they were on fire (kinda were) and was able to roll all the plastic off my finger like Flying Fire Boogers, with nothing more than a sting that lasted a few minutes.  Close call.

Done that used.not fun. I keep a bowl of water handy anytime I work plastic. That's saved some skin on several occasions.

Roger on'nat, Mr. Denny.

I searched "Face Shield Goggles", turns out they're more common than I knew so I guess I'm the ill-informed one.

This first place claims to be out of Florida, nice Unit here...  http://www.fullsource.com/pyramex-gg504tshield/

I've dealt with Gempler's more than once, I'll have to look/see if they carry a rendition...

  I would strongly suggest that.
I like the person I have become. I am not going to live forever, but while I am still here, I will not waste time lamenting what could have been, or worrying about what will be.

I was guilty as well...  most of the times learning happens when we choose, but sometimes it happens when we don't.   :-[
