Hi Poofy and Steve,
Thanks for your replies. I had enquired with MSA prior to my post and was told by one of their crew that they do not stock any replacement for the Defender and that’s where the 2014 date came in (and the V guard shield won’t fit). She advised that I’d need to purchase the complete V Guard system.
I got a reply from Ryan Wenner of Seneca Woodworking and he thinks they “may be ” able to fabricate replacements. When the shutdown began in March and everyone was scrambling for safety gear Seneca made face shields that were splash shields, not impact resistant. I bought several for my lab because it made me feel good that my lab mates were donning face shields made by a woodworking accessory company and not some scienterrific (intentional misspelling) vendor .
Anyway, I need to send him one of of my shields to see if he can find a way to duplicate it. Not only do I want to spend less by getting replacement shields, i also don’t want to contribute to the trash the 8 head bands (I found another one) that are in my shop now
Thanks again guys, I’ll post an update once I read back from Ryan. Marc
