I have gotten hurt more often by the drill press than all the other tools combined in my shop. I understand the buffer is the most dangerous tool but that drill press is a cuttin son of a gun...

Where can I get one of those border patrol hats? Sounds like a good way to get to the front of the line. Hope you heal up quick. I had a close call with the band saw the other day. Gotta be careful not to get to comfortable around it. I hear they love to eat fingers.

a drill press is the one motorized tool I figure I need if I want to stay at least partially sane, while indulging my desire to make some knives. It's been at least a couple of years since I decided I 'needed' one, so maybe my reason for not having one yet is not financial- I'm just scared!shakin

Everyone knows that the buffer is the most dangerous and so everyone is usually more careful around it, but a lot of time we get a little relaxed around some of the other tools and that is when the accidents happen.

Glad you are doing ok and was not hurt to bad. That is a cool idea with the BP hat. I really have to get me one of those. :)

I, too, need one of those BP hats!
That was a great idea.

Almost makes up for the Brain Fart!
Almost.unsure

Glad it was only 5 stitches, coulda been worse.

Yeah, Mark, Bandsaws can be bad.
Close friend lost his middle and ring fingers to one.
His wife didn't want him to have them put back on.:eek:
I'da told her exactly where to get off!

Those Border Patrol hats are great. You can go to the front of the line in the emergency room, the post office, the drivers liscense office etc. Seems the line gets way shorter when some folks see the BP hat. cool 1:duh:

Glad your okay after the accident. Be careful working alone in the shop running machinery.

Glad youre ok, could have been worse bud... It happens,.. ive picked up more hot steel without thinking
And Ive seen folks do so much with a drillpress to a sharp blade without clamping it or even taping it up ,thats so very dangerous . Think skillsaw laying on its side...scary.

Glad it wasn't any worse than that. I have cut my hands ,ground off part of a fingernail and recently had stitches in my finger from a knife I had just finished sharpening.

Clint,
Just so you know, the way to avoid those long tails altogether is to occasionally let up the pressure a bit and then go back at it. It doesn't have to be much, just a coulpe thou will work. This is called pecking and it greatly diminishes those long nasty curls.
Sorry to hear about your injury. My best is slicing off the end of my finger. oops
