Uvex
Uvex Bionic Face Shield with Clear Polycarbonate Visor and Anti-fog Hard Coat

Light weight and comfortable for the money. I bought this and liked it.

I have a UVEX too and wish I was wearing it when that 12" bowl came off and hit me in the face. I wear it all the time now.

I have the Uvex and it works well with the mask I use.  Have noticed that Harbor Freight now has a nice thick face shield & for the price is good.  It's not the chintzy sheet plastic one--comes in a box--less than $20, impact rated same as Uvex---and I have been using that too.
For the woods that I have issues with or prolonged sanding--have Trend for that.

Everyday liberating nice things from ordinary chunks of wood---and I like gnarly wood, the outcome is nearly always better than the start.

Look for Z87.1+ or Z87+ stamped on the faceshield to indicate that it passes the newer high impact standard.

Please keep in mind that a face shield is designed to protect you against small flying chips and such, not against a 12" bowl coming off the lathe.  It will help reduce the damage, but that's not its job.  Airshield has added a warning to their website that the face shield is not a helmet and not designed for protection from large chunks.

Lynne Yamaguchi, who was severely injured when a bowl came off her lathe has started wearing a police riot helmet with face shield when she turns big bowls.  She also put the guard back on her lathe.  It IS designed to stop the 12" bowl.

Very good point!  A face shield provides some protection, but it's still possible for a turner to get hurt very badly.

The act of putting on a face shield should serve as a reminder that ultimately, each turner is responsible for his own safety, and even with a shield, it can be really dangerous to do dumb things.

I've been using a simple and cheap faceshield, cost about €20/$25. Saved me on a few occasions from flying knots at high speed  Shocked I used to use goggles, but can't now due to me needing glass's. Find the shield great, comfortable but does fog up a little sometimes.

Let me tag on this thread and put a request out there.

Our "branch" of AAW now requires the demonstrator and all students and teachers to wear face shields.  I record (video and audio) the monthly demonstrations for the club.  These have become a video library that members can access.

The audio with wrap-around plastic visors in place is poor.  I have the demonstrator wear a wireless microphone, however the face shield reflects the sound around so much.. well, it sounds like we are using two cans and a string to listen through... Huh

Is there a face shield out there that offers eye protection and face protection without the plastic? Cool  I am thinking something like a catchers mask that will accommodate safety glasses.  Anyone seen a product like that??? Sad

Oh, it would be nice if it was less than $50... Thumbs Up

Harbor Freight has a face mask with a wire mesh shield instead of the solid plastic.  That might be what you need - - -

I use one like that, mesh instead of the plastic visor, for when I'm strimming/brush cutting.

Something like this;

I use one like that, and it works well for chainsaw work which is what is is designed for. It will flex if hit with a lump, DAMHIKT, but it deflects shavings great. I don't use at the lathe though, face shield or my as400 shield and helmet.
