Sound advice on stifling hearing loss

Written by John English Monday, 17 May 2010 00:00

john_englishSome woodworkers use a car key, but most guys rely on a little finger to dig out the excess earwax. Normally, wax protects the eardrum from dirt and dust, but it can build to excess when trying to provide a barrier to workshop sound. Woodworkers deal with the low-frequency hum of dust collectors and the high whine of routers on a daily basis, and very few of us take adequate precautions against noise. The result is NIHL (noise-induced hearing loss), which has literally millions of us asking people to repeat things, turn up the TV, and be quiet back there.
