Wearing a mask to protect your respiratory system while grinding, gluing, not to mention social distancing, farriers with glasses often struggle with fogged lenses. One farrier has found a way to solve the problem with materials on his rig.

“To prevent fogging while working, take impression material and apply it to the nose area (Figures 1 and 2),” suggests Patrick Quinn, a Frederick, Md., shoer. “Wear the mask while it hardens. It works great.”
