WOW!!! Glad you weren’t seriously hurt. Safety gear may sometimes be a pain, but I guess it is well worth it. Perhaps it’s time for me to get a shield. Stay safe, and keep the chips flying.

I use face shield and the metal grate shield on my lathe. I’ve had a fairly large piece fly off and hit me in the chest before almost knocking the air out of me.

HAHAHAHAHA I told you I was one clumsy SOB!!!! XD I can’t even imagine how many times I should have lost a face or hand or who knows what. I guess that’s proof that safety equipment really does work! (of course I am exaggerating a little bit)

had a 2lb chunk of bass wood fly off and hit me in the forhead. One concussion and 3 stitches later I finally broke down and got myself a face shield. I guess i always have to learn the hard way.

That could have been a real tragedy. I’d say you were very lucky. I’m glad that you came out ok.
