Would really like this.
Overhead router together with feather board, push stick(s),and maybe a stop block.Nice thing about overhead router is that you can see what you are doing. It is generally an industrial machine so that is why it is not generally used in small shops. Or hand tools. If you have only a couple of joints to do it is sometimes quicker to do it by hand.
Safety and Rings. They should never be worn
when using a power tool. NEVER! I continue to see this in photos even in FWW. Also, I wear safety boots at all times. You could get a very nasty cut from a sharp tool if it happened to fall on your foot.
KDC68 has given the most succinct listing of safety issues that I have ever seen. Well done! This list should be a basic checklist for every shop, school, and in particular for every magazine including FWW.
Have enjoyed FW for many years.I waste a lot of time trying to remember in which issue I thought there was a particular article, so having the index would be great!
It is interesting to read and listen to all the claptrap from people about safety. It will never be taken seriously until we practice what we preach. Specifically I have in mind FW`s disclaimer in every issue about health and safety, while at the same time showing illustrations with people wearing rings, jewellery,loose clothing, long hair not properly tied up, among other things. The editor should institute a check list to be strictly adhered to without exception. My policy in the shop is :Follow the procedures to the letter or there`s the door. No exceptions. I`m liable for the compensation costs.
