I almost hate to mention this but I was cleaning my shop with my dust collector and cyclone only to notice I sucked up a dust bag that was laying next to miter saw. How embarrassing could that be. Come on admit you have one better than this. We all do stupid once in life time.

Well, not in a woodshop, or home workshop, but when I was a jet engine mechanic.  Getting ready to roll an engine to the test cell, and we were inventorying the tool kit, and we were missing a quarter inch socket.  After an hour of searching, and calling Non-Destructive Inspection to see about getting an x-ray done on the engine, I found it in the rolled up cuff on my jumpsuit leg.
Building a platform for a deck, I had the outer frame all squared, you know diagonal measurements etc.  So I was marking outer edge of where the 2x6 would be placed.  I went one direction up and then the outer edge on the way back, needless to say after I looked at them they were all skewed - go figure outsmarted myself on that one!
How about sticking 3 fingers in a running table saw? Now that's what I call embarrassing.

Jim,

     That's horrible, I hope you're ok!!

I don't know if I would call putting 3 fingers in a table saw embarrasing, that seems more like a life changing experience. I hope everything turned out more or less OKJim Shepherd said:

LOL - would have taken awhile - the engines were sixteen feet long and weighed just short of two tons  ;)

Last year I was making a pet rail out of 1"x2"s and half inch dowels. I was using a guide block to drill the holes into the edge of each rail. About half way through, I was having trouble drilling to the depth I had marked on the drill with a piece of tape. I picked up the rail and pushed to get to the mark with the drill. I saw that I had an 8th inch to go. Then, BINGO, that's right that nice sharp brad point bit went into my palm. After wrapping my hand, I looked everything over. Then I saw my problem, my tape had moved a little bit at a time and I did not catch the error. Now I measure twice and drill once. Plus I use dirll stops now.
Not only ouch!!!!!!!!!! but OUCHIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

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…
