      OK,

      I have been looking for safety glasses and gloves for her, and my other daughter. They love driving in nails. They are not easy to find, even harder to explain what they are for.

      "Yeah i need some glasses for my 2 yr and 4 yr old so they can work in the garage" Yup Daddy of the year award coming my way. Alot of people don't get it.

      As for the vice, i have the same concerns. I am never far and i want to teach them (my girls) that tools in the garage are dagerous and should be treated with respect.

      The milk crate is pretty strong and has a large surface area so even if she was to push on it, it could roll 90° before it was to fall on the floor.

      And guys you are correct. They are awesome memories and i wanted to share them with those that have the same intrests as me

      Thank-you all for your kind words.

      Rob

          No intention to pee on your parade Rob but we both know that sh*t happens and in the event of a "Happening" you would NEVER forgive YOURSELF let alone the sweet young thing you married turning into a Fewkin Banshee if you managed to let one of her brood injure itself.

          As a matter of interest, wife saw picture and didn't make a muff, she belives in letting the little buggers graze their knees.

          Regards Ian.

            That was me a long time ago. The look on her face, especially in the second picture, seems to me that she's intently absorbing something- put some other things out for her to 'find'- safe things of course.
            I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

                Silencio used to make kids-sized shooting (safety) glasses and ear muffs that came in a combo pak. Might want to have your local gunshop check on them.

                    They have some kind of smaller spectacles as well, but they may be big for smaller children I guess:

                        Loose nut

                        Too funny

                        She spent all morning crying to go into the garage. I had some grinding to do, so she had to wait. Finally my wife came and got me.

                        "She has been crying for 30 mins. Take her out!"

                        I have created a monster!!
