My take: I had a radial arm saw cutting with the grain along the fence get caught, and the piece went through the wall of my shop when it kicked back.

I don’t know about you, but I cannot imagine a safety shield that would stop a piece of hardwood that will go through plaster, insulation, and T111 siding on one hit. And since the radial arm saw blade is turning about the same RPM as a tablesaw, seems to me that your face shield would not do the job.
