Dan I can’t believe what I’ve witnessed on YouTube . I swear no one there has heard of a mask , eye protection and ear protection. Something I do every cut .
Not a great way to teach the younger generation that’s getting into the hobby.

Changing to a different subject , the more I’ve learned about plumbing , the more mistakes I have seen people make on YouTube , and some of these people are tradesman ?
So if I didn’t know any better, I’d be doing what they say to the letter . Fortunately I did my homework .
So although I still use YouTube videos as a tool , you still have to do your research

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .

Ok , I never insulate

You know, the big decisions. Funny thing, her decisions seem to work out well, mine ... not so much.
Barry - kinda the same thing here but different. My wife makes the small decisions and I make the big decision. Only thing is, we've never had any big decisions (so she tells me)

Just sayin'; there's "stupid" and then there's misinformed.
Either way, yes to your points.
Dan, the "Can't fix stupid" remark was not about the woman with the gloves, it was about the guy with the beard. Leaving that loose around any power equipment displays a complete lack of common sense let alone shop safety. Either that, or he was trying to come up with an alternative to waxing to remove unwanted hair.

Yeah. Awhile back I was thinking of making a small wood lathe, to make carving mallets with. Rather than invent the wheel, I googled, and wound up on youtube. Found the perfect video, guy had about a 3 minute, and showed how to make a simple, but very workable lathe, from wood, using a drill for power. Exactly what I wanted. The next video in line was also about making a lathe, except it was 12+ minutes, not to easy to follow, and not as good a quality of lathe.

For me, youtube is more a source of entertainment than it is for learning. Well, that is partially right - I learned I could watch old cartoons on youtube.

Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

There are only a few safety rules in my shop.
If an operation looks scary, don't do it. I can and have hurt myself with a hand saw. Sharp spinny things make me think more than twice.
Not allowed while machinery is in operation: alcohol, long sleeves, long hair and, any jewelry.
The alcohol ban is obvious. Who likes sawdust in their Scotch?
I have a few nice long sleeved shirts with nasty tears in the sleeves. I was lucky several times. Finally wised up. Nice flannel shirts are expensive.
My hair was never long. But, that prohibition keeps most women and hippies out.
And, I sold all my bling.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I am never unafraid of any power tools, helps keep me safe. But, yes, I have hurt myself with a handsaw also. But hurt myself with a knife mostly. When my hair gets to about 1/2", I am way overdue for a haircut. My beard is 2" or 3", so I'd have to put my face right down close to a machine for that to get caught, and no way am I going to do that. I do wear long sleeve shirts almost daily, summer or winter, from since I was a kid. Dress uniform in the Army was about the only times I have regularly worn short sleeve shirts. Fatigues were long sleeved, but we could roll the sleeves up. I still roll up the long sleeve shirts I wear, never wear one unrolled. So, even tho I wear long sleeves, they never get close to a power tool. I need some new shirts this year, and may have to get some short sleeved, because I can't find any long sleeved I like that are in my size. Bah.
