    made goggles for

    Are these sentences correct:

    1-He made goggles for welders in his workshop.

    2-He made goggles in his workshop for welders.
    3-He made, in his workshop, goggles for welders.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    #1 could mean that he made goggles only for the welders who were in his workshop.
    #2 could mean that he had a workshop for welders, and he made goggles there.
    #3 is clunky.

    try: In his workshop (,) he made goggles for welders.
