I like the carbon steel tools, but they didn't have a dust/chip deflector. Most of it hit me and my mask/face shield. My solution was to use goop and attach a super magnet on the tool. Then I got a squeeze type paper clip, (larger example shown) removed the outer finger clamps and goop a small piece of steel to it. Then goop in a piece of plexiglass. It is on an angle and perfect for deflecting. If there is a drawback it is that the magnet attracts other things too, but not much of a problem. I have magnets on all my carbon steel turning tools. The shield quickly goes from tool to tool.
