I've been using a cheap-o HF full face shield for woodturning and I'm
looking to upgrade to something I can actually see through. I wear
prescription trifocals, so it needs to accommodate glasses. I think
I'd prefer to stick with a full face shield instead of goggles. A y
I'm in that camp. I treat face shields like rubber gloves: disposable.
When they get too scratched up, they go in the recycling bin and I pick
up a new one at HF for less than the cost of a replacement shield insert
for the expensive models.
The will all get scratched up at some point. The HF ones seems to be
much lighter, too. I have a couple that get rotated between certain tool
stations and weed-eating.
"Playing is not something I do at night, it's my function in life"
Me too. I am not a big HF fan but face shields and some expendables
are where HF fits into my hobby funding. Rubber gloves have a very
short life when I pull them out of the box and I don't expect a face
shield to last forever. It just needs to be sturdy enough to stop
that heavy chunk of Oak that flew out of my lathe a few years ago.
And the HF shield did just fine.
