    ALLWAYS where a full face shield

    Here is a good reason to ALLWAYS wear a full face shield.I was coring out a 14" piece of ambrosia maple and miscalculated where it was headed and got just a tad to close to the bottom.All I felt was something hitting the face shield,it happened so fast.When It went thru the bottom, it caught the cutter then just exploded.

    Good reminder Ken.

    Jeff, if that were me, would just throw them out!!!

    Ken, walked up on a student this morning and told him that shield wouldn't do him any good being in the up position. Appreciate your post as I show them to my students all the time! Glad you are okay, you are aren't you?????

    Ken glad you are ok and thanks for the reminder. I never enter the shop without it. After catching one in the chest on a near miss to the face it is always on.

    And if you are like me, I just ain't fast enough to get out of the road.:rofl

    Ken,
    Post the pic of the slight boo-boo you had with a chainsaw & why you should wear a faceshield using one.
