A true bucket head!
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I almost hesitate to bring this up because a SERIOUS injury resulted, but I know of a guy that did something similar, back in the 80s. He was mowing with a Cub and belly mower and wanted to keep the stray grass clippings out of his eyes. So he put a paper bag over his head. But he forgot the eyeholes. I am not making this up. The problem was he was mowing the grounds at a local elementary school and ran over a child, permanently injuring her. IIRC the case was settled out of court and the Cub and mower were retired shortly thereafter!

I wish I had that bucket about 15 years ago. I had crawled under my travel trailer to grind the old leveling jacks off in preparation to put new ones on. After I was under it and ready to go to work I realized my goggles were about 30 yards away in the shed. I thought, OH WELL, my prescription glasses are safety glasses, and went ahead with my grinding. I learned the hard way that the hot sparks from a grinder will stick to glass lenses, and also leave pits in the where they melt in.

Hey now,

In Oklahoma, that is what qualifies as OSHA approved PPE
Tractors are like watermelons: the RED is good and you throw away the GREEN.
