Though it might work for my purposes, I probably can't get away with a bump hat. I need the hard hat to enter various shipyards and some customer vessels.

Are there any comfortable hard hats?

Mine gives me a headache if i tighten it down enough so it doesn't flop around. Fine if I'm just standing around like a boss, but not so great if i have to move around and do any real work.

Looks nice. And affordable enough to have a spare set around to speed up valve adjustments (clean them later at your leisure)

Yeah, my plating cost was something like $300 as i recall. FWIW i just read on facebook that PMB bought the plating equipment from the company they were using, so they will do plating in house now.

What size socket for ARP head stud kit?
