These aren’t tools, exactly; they’re eyewash bottles, but they’re something that everyone who works with tools should have. Any time you are drilling, filing, cutting, sanding, sweeping or using compressed air, you stand the risk of getting debris in an eye, even if you’re wearing safety glasses. The intruder could be as small and relatively harmless as a particle of dust or as large and potentially damaging as a sliver of metal.
When such an incident occurs, you need to act immediately and do everything possible to prevent permanent eye injury. If the debris is as large and sharp as the aforementioned piece of metal and you can’t easily extract it yourself, you need to seek professional medical help right away. But if it is just dust or a small particle of something less harmful, you often can flush it out using an eyewash bottle.
The two bottles you see here are available from Graham Tool Company (www.grahamtool.com) in 4-ounce (part #F24845) and 32-oz. (#F24581-0000) sizes for $12.95 apiece.
The wire rack (#H24859-0000) is meant to be hung on a wall with just a single nail or screw, but its $34.95 price is excessive; you could easily find or fabricate a cheaper method of making the bottle easily and quickly accessible.
The small bottle is a convenient carry-along size that can fit in a toolbox; the larger one is better suited for home and garage use. Each has a built-in eyecup that cradles the eye socket to facilitate dousing the eye with water.
