Being left handed like I am helps to stay out of the line of fire, but you still have to stay focused, really great tips Reed and thank you for your time and effort for putting these videos together...very well done...

Thanks for the tips Reed.  I too read of the recent accidents and for the first time went out and bought an entry level face shield just yesterday.  I think I stand out of the line of fire, I will check myself next turning session.  That was the best advice.

Thanks Reed for the post and the video.  It never hurts to remind us all of safety, especially us newbies.  I do "try" to remember not to stand in the line of fire, but I think I need a poster.

Well done Reed, good for new and old turners alike, incidents with wood are always a risk, as your video shows we can take precautions to limit exposure by positioning and use of the safety gear.

That was an excellent safety video!! I hate masks but have a healthy imagination. Your point about spray from wet wood is well made, if the spray is going in that direction then the bowl has a fair chance of doing so too.

Thanks also for showing me that I'm not the only one who prefers to use scrapers for most of the work.

Good information!  I am an extreme newbie and this will come in handy.  Better not to get bad habits that need fixing down the road after a trip to the emergency room.

I've been turning for a couple of years now. When I bought my lathe I was picking up the accessories I thought I needed, one was a cheap face shield.
The first thing I tried to turn was a piece of tree limb about 5 or 6 inches in diameter and about 10 inches long. A few minutes into turning between centers it started to wobble and before I could react it came off the lathe and struck me square in the face shield. It bounced off my face shield and landed about 10 feet away in the driveway. No damage to me or the shield, well maybe my nerves.
Since then I NEVER turn on the lathe with a piece mounted with my face shield off. I even wear it to sand and finish.
Funny sometimes I forget it is even on and try to wipe sweat from my glasses and my hand hits the shield. Thumbs Up

Excellent safety video, Reed! Like you said, staying out of the line of fire won't always save you. A few months ago I was turning a 5x8 piece of oak and I was out of the line of fire by about 22 degrees. Much to my dismay the oak had a check in it that I couldn't see right above the tenon. As I started to hollow the bowl it came apart. I was wearing my new Bionic faceshield and the piece caught me square across the face. Left two scratches where my eys and nose are but it stayed on my face. Still the impact was forceful enough to leave me a bit stunned for a moment. It is during those moments when you begin to take stock and contemplate what just happened.  And like you said, safety cannot be stressed nearly enough when you are working with the tools of our passion.

Great vid.
I am going to suggest our safey guru for our woodclub make the vid known to all turners.

I also plan to mention it.  Good job.

Thanks Reed, some food for thought though ... on my recent mishap (Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register) I was standing well(!) out of the line of fire on a short-bed setup, "just" adjusting the foot with light cuts when the piece came off ... I still don't know how it ended up on my forehead and would love to see it in slow-mo, but anyway, I guess it must have bounced off the tool or tool-rest and still, after ricocheting of my head, had enough force to dent the tin roof
