Workshop Coat

"Richard" wrote in message
I've ruined my trousers the other day when I used the grinder. I suppose the sparks melted the polyester in the trousers.
I need a workshop coat that will stand up to sparks generated by my grinder. Any recommendations? Thanks.
Ahem! How about a shop coat? I don't buy mine new, no need. I go to a laundry that specialises in cleaning them, and buy used ones that they don't want to send out to customers. As a rule they supply these, and lab coats to customers for a fee, and pick them up for cleaning weekly, and drop off clean ones. The same firms do shop rags.
Never buy retail, when you can buy wholesale. Never buy new, when used will do just as well.

Not a coat exactly, but I use ex mil overalls, flight suits etc. Very thick cotton and will take indefinate washing without shinking. Some of the flight suits are also fireproof. Not too warm for the summer and good enough to work outside in the winter, if you get a size big enough to include a thick sweater. Two ex german army tank suits and an raf flight suit are still going strong after ten years or more, though a little faded. Cheap from Ebay, steam / country fairs etc...
