another hazard that's very dangerous is if you put your fingers in a blender that's running, don't do that either!..

My Aunt did that*. She was never able to satisfactorily explain why.
I think it had jammed and she tried to clear it without unplugging it. You'd think it would automatically turn of in a jammed situation?

*Yep. A trip to the ER ensued.

Like I mentioned earlier 'losing cookies' worthy. Good news was that after everything was put back together, and healed, she didn't lose anything that mattered.

Good to know about. Mine his covered, but it's worth watching for on other people's.

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.

Scraps are a myth.

a belt sander has 2 handles, and you are supposed to have one hand on each handle when using it. and unplug it when you can't do that, like for adjustments..

Martin; now you tell me...
Seriously, in hindsight, I agree completely.

Unplugging is a great practice . A few times I got lazy and didnít unplug my tablesaw when I installed the dado blades .
But thatís playing with fire imo

Of course, there are exceptions. More than once, I've had to terminate a job or run a belt one handed. If nothing else, it'll get you in good shape.

I have the small Porter Cable sander designed for single hand use now. It is about the best tool I ever used for scribing to the line on a counter back. It made it so easy to sand to the line and move on.

From all this comes the another hazard. A more stealthy one - dust.

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.
