Its a funny thing that we all talk a lot about table saw safety and power tools in general, but no one ever talks about hand tools. Last night I was using a japanese style saw to trim something and I used my finger to get the saw registered at the face, and whoops there went a whole chunk of finger tip (OK fine it wasn’t that bad, but ouch). It kind of reminded about the time I learned to be rediculously carfeul using chisels. I think its odd that after paying so much attention to being safe around power tools that I once on a great while let my attention lapse with hand tools. Anyone else find themselves in a similar situation. BE SAFE.
