Do you wear a hat when turning?
Aug 10th, 2018 at 12:55pm
 
I’ve been in the shed for a couple of days turning some bowls and ended up with lots of wood shavings in my hair. I wear a face shield so anything I choose mustn’t interfere with this. I noticed one of the YouTube turners wears some sort of head covering, I wonder where he got it?

Wil, I don't wear a hat or doo rag when I turn.  Don't have enough hair to worry about shavings collecting in it. Cheesy

I usually wear a baseball cap until I need the face mask. I have a thing like the football players wear but usually forget to put it on first

Thanks guys,  Thumbs Up I had thought of a ball cap backwards but maybe a Doo Rag might do the trick. Not sure if they sell them here in the UK, I’ll have to have a look.

Was it me???? I have had people not recognize me because I was not wearing my hat.... I get mine through 'The Hat People' here in Oregon. Not cheap, but very durable. They are similar to welder's caps, short bill, and turn the bill out the back side. Essential for when I do wear a face mask, or if I have hearing protection on. I don't like my 'solar panel' getting irritated.

Reed, when I read the original post, I immediately thought of you.

I wear a welders cap with the bill backwards to keep chips from going down my back. Makes face shield more comfortable, about 10.00 at a welding supply store.

I used to wear a welders cap when I used to wear my hair longer, they work under any face shield.

Well, I think a dew rag as being a bandana, but rather than being work as a strip around your head like a sweat band, you open it up and tuck the open tip under the knot in back. Used to wear one when I first started doing concrete work, but the baseball had did a better job of keeping concrete from splashing in my eyes. The line pumps were almost non existent back then and we used wheel barrows a lot...
