The Rockler Lathe Chip Deflector helps to redirect chips and debris away from the turner's hands, arms, torso and face. When positioned correctly, the chips are guided into the dust scoop on the required Dust Right® Lathe Dust Collection System (#52981, sold separately). The result is less mess and less time needed to clean up after turnings. The deflector attaches to the post on yourLathe Dust Collection System via a sturdy steel attachment arm that is height adjustable with the included 3-star knob. From the attachment arm, an 8'' articulating arm lets you position the shatter-resistant polycarbonate deflector in front of the workpiece, and angle it for optimum effectiveness.

Does an excellent job of keeping the chips from blowing back on you when turning. Nice adjustable gooseneck. I'm happy with it.

Awesome accessory
I found this deflector shield to be very useful. It actually increased the efficiency of my Dust Right Lathe Collection system. Keeps chips and sawdust off of me to a great extent.
