I started finishing the bottom of a Oak bowl that was 10” round. When the tool decided to grab the wood and it proceeded to fly off of the lathe. I was sure glad to be standing to the side when it happened. The only thing that happened to me was a small slice on the fingure. The bowl on other hand suffered far more than I did. TOTAL WASTE!! But I’m glad it wasn’t me or my face. I was wearing my face shield at the time, but the with the weight of the bowl, I don’t know if it would have helped much.
