In Response To Should I wear a turner's smock? (Joe shelton)

A good turners smock will keep you cleaner but isn't essential but be aware of loose sleeves at the wrist on you clothing.
My lathe never gets turned on, no matter what the job is, without a faceshield. It doesn't take much of a high speed projectile to seriously damage your face or worse, take out an eye!
Remember, an exploding cracked blank or a weak bark inclusion holding a burl together can hit your head with enough force to crack you skull, eye orb bones or kill you! Keep the speed down to minimize this happening.
Note that while some faceshields offer protection from smaller parts it really requires heavy duty protection for heavier flying objects and this isn't easy to find, especially if you want it convenient and comfortable.
