Watch out for those runaway sawblades. A last minute halloween costume idea I threw together for saturday nights events.

Naturally, that headwound will make you more analytical, objective, rational.

I hope you know that blood will rust that nice saw blade. You should remove it immediately and get right over to a sharpening service to carefully remove any more blood and check the condition of the blade teeth.

Last year I decided to prank some of the older treat or treat kids (you know – the high schoolers). Just so happens that they had to walk up the drive near the shop door. The garage lights were on, but they aren’t especially bright so you could see things, just not too well. At any rate, I would turn on the table saw and dust collector as they started up the driveway, then shut it off and come stumbling out the door, screaming “oh my Gawd, Help me”, grabbing at the “stump” of my arm with ketchup all over my arm and shirt. Then I’d drop the stump of my hand on the ground. All of my theatrics were back light by the bright light from the shop.

Judging by their reactions, I’d say I was successful. Most of them never made it to the front door to get any candy. That meant more for the little kids. Hehe hehe hehe….

I like the angle. Maybe a 10 penny nail off to the side, and carry a nail gun,

You guys are hilarious. I could have made it much more realistic if I had had more time and a helping hand.

I guess you didn’t have to worry about loosing any hair!

Looks like a 45° angle is good but a 90 would have made a nice Mohawk.

This is just to darn cool! Love it!
