    Re: Design Help Request

    Phil, Just brainstorming, but is there be any advantage to making them smaller multi panels that fasten together?

    You’d reduce the size of each Lexan panel required. That might lower the cost of replacing a small panel versus a larger sheet.

    There could be additional frame structure around each sheet.

    Panels would be smaller and easier to manage for handling and storage.



    perhaps there are other advantages (or disadvantages) to a multi panel configuration.

    Re: Design Help Request

    Ken said that NCWW will be demonstrating at an AAW event and they have standards that have to me met (I think it's in Raleigh, June or July 2019).

    The AAW links that Dee2 provided describe Lexan safety shields that are 24" x 36" x 1/8" and Phil is suggesting 30" x 36" for our NCWW lathes. We may not have much leeway to play with the basic design.

    we use a lot of the 8020 extruded aluminum material with lexan for safety guards at my work. it's easy to assemble and disassemble into panels for storage.

    1/4" thick is what I read in both BoMs, FWIW.

    Thanks Gene, you are correct. From you AAW links:


    • 1 each ~ 2’ x 3’ by 1/4” thick clear poly carb


    Safety panel
    1⁄4” thick lexan or Plexiglas safety panel available from Home Depot or Lowes

    Phil, you can also plan maybe to put vinyl logo or something on the fronts and dress then up.

    Re: Design Help Request

    If you plan to use 8020 aluminum extrusions, I would suggest you use their eBay store as their prices will be substantially lower than a source like Graingers. JMTCW.

    Re: Design Help Request

    A lot has changed since I messed with the AAW years back. Back then it was a standard stunt for the turner to fill someone's lap with green wood shavings. Most of this safety shield worry came about when a long haired student girl was tragically killed using a big metal lathe late at night unsupervised. Right after that, our club experimented with those safety shields for a few meetings. They're great for those standing close by, but for a seated audience, a safety shield becomes a light reflector. If AAW dictates their use during AAW sponsored functions, then the rules are the rules, but most club meetings don't use them any more.

    Re: Design Help Request

    Bob,

    That was indeed a very awful lathe accident and an important reminder of both the importance of securing long hair (something I occasionally have to be aware of depending upon how long my hair is at that moment in time) and loose clothing/jewelry as well as the importance of knowing where the emergency kill switch is at all times.

    I would very much like to believe that her loss may have helped to save others from the same fate as those are images that should never fade from one’s mind...but we humans have such feeble memories I suspect many have long since forgotten.

    Although easier to scratch and more expensive, IIRC, polycarbonate (Lexan) is more impact resistant and less brittle than Acrylic (Plexiglas).
