That would certainly protect you from flying debris Pablo. If you actually own that and it is old then you could easily trade it here for quite a few woodworking tools. I remember seeing one sell a while back. I can't remember how much it was worth but it was quite a bit if it was from the era near when they were invented.
Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
