Sorry if I seem rude or overly sensitive. I really appreciate the replies from members who are actually trying to answer my initial question about the Uvex Face Shield. And honestly, I ve enjoyed almost all of the responses, whether they were helpful or not. But, I just wanted to briefly address this idea that my plan to wear a couple of extra pieces of safety gear is somehow a bad idea.

Sorry, yes my post was a bit facetious.

Seriously, it’s important that you’re comfortable, relaxed and alert.
It’s not always the kicked back piece hitting you.

I was cutting a small piece, just as John S, although the material was lexan it doesn’t matter.
The piece kicked back out of the saw and my left hand thrust down into the blade. Mangled a few fingers.

Morel of the story is that anything can happen,
Knowing and feeling your material, being aware of signs that something is starting to happen and knowing what to do when it does is the foremost experience you need to have.
Protection is secondary, but is also necessary, just don’t stop learning the rest of the experience.
