Re: When You Have Your Accident

Great article... and very true.

For me it was on the router table using a lock mitre bit without a supplmental tall fence... the piece stood on end (a short piece to test set up) got pulled into the split fence gap by the bit and my off hand (guiding it) went with it. It wasn't bad, but enought that it merrited a trip the local ER to have it looked at. They described it as an "angry wound" ... i.e. "you made hamburger out of the tip of your finger!".

I had a thought a split second before the accident that this wasn't as safe as it could be... then it nipped me. Oh... should mention it was really late (1am) I was trying to finish a project for a deadline...

A co-worker cut about 1/2" off the tip of his finger at the tablesaw about the same time.

You'd be amazed by the collection of push sticks and work holding devices I have now to keep my fingers safe.

Thanks for helping keep us all on our toes.

Re: UPDATED: Giveaway and Poll: The Most Requested Woodworking Gifts of 2009

I'm really horrible at grinding my plane/chisel blades. I need a veritas grinding rest/jig combination. That's #1 on my list. #2 is a 890 plunge base. The 890 I have came as part of a lot in an estate auction - with incra fence, router lift, rockler router table top, and fixed base but not the plunge base... best $100 I spent last year. Added steel legs (on sale now) recently and a table switch... just need that plunge base for other uses of the motor.

Re: UPDATED: What Tools Are on Your Holiday Wish List?

Dear Santa, I would like the following:
1. Natural gas heater for shop
2. Lee Valley gridner rest and jig
3. WOOD - Suitable for plane building
4. LN Moulding plane iron blanks
5. Table saw outfeed table
6. Router table base for recently aquired Incra positioner, router, and lift

And as said by others time and energy to use my shop.
