Nicely said Don.
I have been bitten by every tool in my shop but never with the router. But I have used it for a catapult to shoot a piece of wood across the shop.
I once felt under the material I was cutting with my skill saw to see if the blade was going all the way through, before it came to a complete stop.
Gave me a nice little slot on my finger.
Even filed my finger nails a couple of times on the belt sander
My table saws scares the S**t out of me often enough to keep me on my toes.
I once used my steel speed square to keep my material plumb while cutting dove tails on the table saw. Worked great until I got to the half cut at the end.
I still use that speed square just so I see the neat slot cut out of the end every time I use it.
But, I can still count to ten without having to take my shoe off.
Always Keep in mind that you are dealing with high speed sharp instruments.
And, hey, welcome to the forum.
When the enemy is in range, so are you.
