turning smock/apron recommendation
I've spent a lot of my free time lately getting covered in sawdust from the lathe and am starting to like or dislike a species of wood based on how itchy it is when it goes down the collar of my shirt :-)
So I've looked at several woodturners aprons/smocks, but don't know what to actually buy. My major concerns are sawdust down the shirt collar, all over my shirt, and being able to just shake the sawdust off the apron itself, but most of all comfort. I've seen aprons with soft collars, but it seems to me that sawdust would stick to that material so once some gets inside the collar it would be difficult to get it out. I generally wear short sleeved shirts in my workshop and have no problem with dusting off my arms and watch (amazing how lathe sawdust seems to pile right on my watch).
