Thanks for the responses so far. I will def wear safety glasses underneath. Better safe than sorry.


from personal experience, I now concentrate on PREVENTING kickbacks.
I no longer cut anything smaller than my arm freehand – I will use the sled for those.

I would look for something with a marriage of a hockey mask, major league catchers mask,
lumberjack chainsaw helmet, football helmet, etc etc etc – LOL yeah, a little overkill – - –

but, to shield the eyes, nose and throat from flying lumber is critical.
damage to the hands, arms and torso is easier to work around than a banged up face.
[been there – done that – and got the eyepatch to prove it]

John – your story has def effected me and is one of the reasons I want face protection.


They do claim they are rated ansi z87+ which was tested for high velocity impact. https://blog.safetyglassesusa.com/what-does-ansi-z87-1-2010-certified-mean/
Scroll down for the description of the ”+”. Video also shows the testing method.

Hermit, thanks so much for sharing this. Very interested.
