Finished lathe chip shield

The magnets I ordered of eBay arrived yesterday, so this morning I finished up the chip shield. The Neodymium magnets are stronger that I expected, so I decided to use two instead of four. They provide enough holding force, that you need to have a firm grip on the knob to move the shield.

Hopefully this set-up with minimize the number of hot chips launched my way, while still providing an unobstructed view of the cutter.
