Well said, Jay. I would say most shop accidents are caused by complacency. We get comfortable with our equipment and forget the damage it can cause. I've dodged a bullet more times than I care to remember because I wasn't giving the task my full attention. Contrary to what I always told my kids when they came to me with their "ouchies", it WON'T grow back.

As you all know by now I am a safety preaching  wood worker whom will try to push safety in the shop and every where else that I can.  In my prior profession I saw too much blood shed all labeled under the term' ACCIDENT".  It can be behind the wheel of a automobile, walking on the street or in the home and especially in the home shop.  I found that ACCIDENTS is caused by a  common term I call "FAILURE".  Failure of us to think and pay attention to what we are doing and when that happens and the conditions are present that "FAILURE" becomes the "Accident".

I am attaching a video of something that I am sure of that all of us are aware of and in this one it stars a well known television actor we all know by the name of "TOM" .  I have see several videos of the table saw safety device however not as good as this one.  (don't panic there is no blood) but it demostrates a point as to how dangerous the saw is.     Have a happy and a safe Memorial day.

Miter Saw Recommendation

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
