You sure you didn’t just have someone throw some chips at you…it doesn’t even look like it is moving.
(You know this is how all those conspiracy theories started!)

Dennisgrosen: It does have its dangers. I like using the tool rest in the photo for these jobs, which I always set to block my arm from getting too close, and to cover the full extent of the swing.

TopamaxSurvivor: Those chips were smacking me in the face!

That is why I always use a full face shield and would highly recommend that everyone who uses a lathe do so as well. I have had a piece break off and smack me in the face and if I had not been wearing a full face shield I believe that I would have really gotten hurt. Turn safely!

Never thought about that being your toughening up face for adversity :-))
