I second the no-glove thing. I got my finger sucked into the clamps of a tire machine because of my glove. I'm lucky to still have my finger tip, and a scar and slight loss of feeling remind me if that fact.


I hate signatures.

I was cutting with a hand miter box the other day. As I am cutting i flashed a picture in my head that said man cuts finger with miter box. I stopped cutting and looked at what I was doing. I was safe but you really need to watch your hand placement when working with sharp stuff. I was holding the wood far enough back, but if I lost my focus I could see cutting your hand if you got to close.
