Shop Safety - What To Wear

Posted in How To on March 1, 2006

So you've got a date with a really hot girl and you'renot sure what to wear. She's kind of a big girl, and she definitely likes it rough, but she can also be dirty. You've played with these types before and you have the scars to prove it, so this time you're gonna do things a bit different. Before you head to the garage for that hot date and exciting weekend with your special something, go over this list of what to wear, and you'll definitely have a good time, hopefully without the trip to the hospital that these rendezvous can result in.

Our pre-tryst shopping spree was done at the local hardware store as well as the Burbank, California, Airgas welding supply store. Though you may think this wardrobe rebuild may cost you an arm and a leg, just remember that it's actually designed to save your arms and legs, not to mention eyes, ears, and nose. You can trust our advice when it comes time for you to make the moves, and before you know it you'll be out whooping it up in the woods with that big girl.

No matter how careful we are, sometimes things can heat up and get out of hand, so be prepared to cool it down before getting out of there. We recommend something good with liquids and gases (class B) and energized electrical equipment (class C), though something that also works on paper and wood (class A) is an added bonus. Just don't get a class A-only unit for your shop or garage. The Kidde Kitchen and Garage unit (far left) and Dry Chemical unit (right) are both great options, though the Dry Chemical unit can also be recharged, where the others are throw-away items. The sleek little FireAde2000 (center) is good for class A and B fires, and has a place in all of our favorite rides.
