>Thanks to everybody on this forum who scared me into using my face mask all the time. I've been turning for about a year and a half, and tonight was the first time I had a big chunk come out of a bowl. The chunk that came out was about 4" long, and it hit me in the forehead part of my face mask - just above my eyes. Except for a big surprise, no damage was done to me. The bowl is a total loss, however. It really reinforced the fact that everybody should use a face mask ALL the time. Thanks again.
