Hi beers

That's a real hard one, like you I wear glasses all the time and I have for a long time but they are the safety type but I do wear a face shield when I run the drill press,lathe,etc.anything that's putting out chips my way, but I don't think it will protect me against a flying bit, I have broke a bit or two but they just drop, they don't fly across the shop most are just get stuck in the stock,they are not spring loaded.

But if you like the face sheild or the googles wear them ,safety 1st. :)

The googles I have get in my way of site so to speak and I tried many types but they always get put to one side when I use the router, I want to see everything that's going on in front of me.
The one thing I do recommend is ear plugs ,the router is one of the items in the shop that will nail your hearing over time.
Many wood workers are now using the new type of face sheild with the air device on them, you may want to try one out, you may like it over the standard face sheild.
I did and I didn't like it,but many do. :)

but this is just my 2 cents.

Bj :)
