One night after turning I washed up and my hands were on fire. Wood chips flying back at my hand and fingers had left hundreds of little paper-like cuts. You couldn't see them but I sure could feel them. The next day I made two chip deflectors. Video at bottom on how to make your own.
You'll need a piece of scrap hardwood, some small rare earth magnets, and 2"x4" piece of plexiglass.
