I will admit this is inspired, in part, because of the thread on Lee’s accident. I just do not feel right about hijacking that thread. I admit my HF buffer scares me more than any tool in my shop. I do not use a buffer much in my shop and when I do its mostly on handles. I have a hard and fast rule that I only work on the underside of my wheel. Since my first buffer incident threw a steak turner I forged into my foot I have had this rule. My second rule is I only use a buffer standing not sitting where my legs are in the flight path of a launched blade. My belief is that when (not if) my buffer grabs something else it will be thrown behind the machine into a wall. Does anyone have an additional buffer tip or rule I am missing?
