Best Shop Safety Practices
 
1 Attachment(s)
I follow Router Forums on Facebook (not here to discuss the pros and cons of Facebook, so don't even go there).

Saw a post today in reference to an article regarding "best shop safety practices. Appears the individual the picture is using a jointer - she's wearing safety glasses, ear muffs and gloves - great. But........

Her hair is hanging down and she's not using push blocks. In fact, looks like she's got a finger and a thumb hanging over the edge of the board. Surely at some point she's going to missing a couple of digits when she makes contact with the cutters.

You would think that if you're going to post an article on "shop safety", the least you could do is a little homework before including such an egregious picture.

Don't the folks that come up with these articles and photos pay any attention to what's actually going on, or have they never been around sharp spinny things?

Geez

Edit: meant to include a link to the article on Router Forums: http://www.routerforums.com/articles...ety-practices/

People like that scare the hell out of me. I stopped by this morning to see an acquaintance. He was putting a bit in a DW 611. I ask him what he was working on and he showed me a small board about 4x6x1/4 inch thick that was going to route the edge of. I without thinking said it would be easier and safer in his router table. He agreed I was likely right and put the bit in the table. Then he took the little board and started a climb cut on one side. Then he started to do the same on the first end grain and I said I had to get going as I needed to get home. He is not what I would call a rank beginner but he to sometimes scares me.

What’s a woman doing in a shop anyways , especially when there’s cooking and cleaning to be done ? :grin:

Oooooo....
And that would explain somebody's active dating schedule. ;)
On the issue at 'hand'; I'd veto the gloves as well. Maybe tight fitting Nitrile, but that's it.
Getting back to Rick's POV; somebody has to clean the shop...*runs for cover*

Stick is right you two you’re on a dangerous path.

In case anyone doubts the power wielded by women, note how often members here talk about getting their spouse's support for new tool necessities. They live longer and control the money in the end. Women also make most of the life altering decisions, and generally take better care of their health and money. The stats don't generally favor men. My wife and I celebrate our 20th anniversary today. Started late, finishing strong.

I honestly think that some of those types watch 2 or 3 youtube videos, and think they know everything they need to know. One of the problems is, the videos might have been made by idiots. I don't know everything about woodworking, but one of my top rules is, keep away from the whirly parts. I would have been using push sticks. I also do not stand in line with my saw blade, often use a foot switch with my power tools - if something goes bad it is a lot faster to take my foot off the switch than it is to find the off switch and push it. There is more, but this is enough for now.
