OK, I confess….

I always use a blade guard, eye protection, ear protection, and a respirator and I NEVER, EVER run a board over the jointer without a push block…...

.....Yeah, right…..

You’re exactly right, Jim, but as a 20 yr ww’er, you and I both know when we get lulled into stuff like that, eventually we get bit in the ass, it serves as a reminder that we need to respect our machines a little more than we.

One of my recent reminders came when ripping some stock with a loose knot.
No eye protection. No push block.
Almost had a bad day.

That’s my biggest downfall: not looking at the stock just robotically feeding it in.
