    LOL! Oddly I do when I chainsaw. I look like a giant Kevlar pumpkin. The shop I approach willy nilly. Especially the cute buffer, it's just so homely and unprecision.

    NOPE! Yall are all rong! The most dangerous tool in my shop is the refrigerator! One six pack of Guinness draft and a twelve pack of SN IPA! and maybe some other "stuff". A shop rag aint safe after them tools get used!

    So true. I'll rephrase, a twelve pack, a few shots of Jager Meister and the polishing machine equals evil. It wasn't the case but makes a good story.

    I usually keep 5-20 gallons of danger on tap. I don't mix IPA with HI - synergistically hazardous

    What are the chances that puncture resistant fencing gear will stop a blade accelerated by a buffer?
    Would safe me from having to buy big leather aprons and what not and is probably stronger too.

    The masks we use supposedly stop a sword of 2.5 pounds purposefully thrusted at it while maintaining great visibility. I hoped a bit less aimed, flying knife would deflect more easily but yes it's probably sharper and pointier than our training long swords.
    What kind of kevlar protection do you wear? Flak Jacket type? And what kind of head gear do you suggest?
    Sorry, complete topic drift but very interesting, the usual at HI forums :))

    Guess my wife beater T shirt don't make for much protection. Safety glass's might help if I took time to put em on.

    Well I guess Kevlar can be used in many ways. I should only speak about chainsaw protection since that's what I know the most about. I wear the bib overalls. When a spinning chain encounters the fibers, it tears them loose and binds the chain and sprocket of even the largest chainsaws before it can go deep enough to cut you. I wear a regulation Husqvarna helmet with an incorporated shield and hearing protection, steel toed boots and Kevlar padded gloves. No, I don't look as cool as if I were wearing my Filson Flannel but, I've seen chainsaw cuts. Actually, they're not cuts, they remove furrows of flesh and bone. That said, I have some 137cc gear drive saws pulling 60" bars and full 1/2" chisel chain. I don't think there's enough Kevlar in a garment to bind one in time. However, they are so big and heavy kick back is a near impossiblity and the biggest cause of injury besides hot dogging. For 100cc and under clutch driven saws they work very well. They don't work on electric chainsaws at all, glad I don't own one.

    My chainsaw chaps are fluorescent orange camouflage. I get a lot of comments whenever I wear them, but safety first! I'm not at all confident that the would stop a kukri, but they are way better than jeans.

    I'm with you brother. I might look like a pumpkin but, I don't plan on being carved like one either. Im the brunt of jokes but don't give a rat's rear. I run some bad boy woods modded saws. That takes most the focus off anyway.

    The masks are made mainly from steel wire mesh. Some people try to drive nails through it with a hammer to see if they are strong enough. I still don't trust them all the way. A flying Kukri is probably pushing it depending on the buffers power.

    Kevlar blocking the chain sounds interesting. :-o

    I've only played with Stihl saws when fixing them as a summer job during high school 20 or so years ago. Still remember some part numbers. :p

    I've resurrected all brands of chainsaws made from the 50's to current. My favorites are old school when torque ruled over RPM. Of those, Homelite, McCullough and Stihl are some of my favorites. The 048, 051, 056, 066, 076, 084, 088 and 090 being at the top of the list. I have a McCullough SP125 powered by a 101b cart motor that's hard to compete with even with woods modded saws.

    A house full of chainsaws, knives, swords, guns and cameras. I guess it's fruitless to deny my Germanic heritage. Oh, I forgot the bear rugs and taxidermy mounts, I guess that takes it to home plate.

    Lol. Welcome to the club.
    I'm kinda Germanic too. Being born in Germany and such. However if I go back long enough we had quite a few Frenchmen who fled France in the 16 hundreds. One of the branches left to America and had General Patton as one of their descendants and some escaped to Prussia and well there's me today.
    Also got most likely a Northern Italian ancestor and some from Bohemia and Switzerland and according to an DNA test 1 percent of Jewish and a big chunk Scandinavian DNA and suddenly Germanic doesn't look that defined anymore.
    I bet most other Germans would also be surprised of what a mixed breed they are. I wish they'd have had DNA tests in the 1930s.

    Bear rug sounds cool and all the other things too of course.
