Hard to choose….. but one of these two.
- shipwright

shipwright—what even are those?

Not to say it cannot injure you or that I don t approach it with safety in mind, but compared to my saws i feel more at ease operating it.

- Stewbot

Stewbot—funny you say that—I think one of my worst injuries came from my drill press and a brad point bit. I was trying to drill a 3/8” hole in something really small, held only by my fingers…. The bit grabbed it, spun my index finger underneath its spinning spikes, and shredded a small ripped hole into my finger pad. Not very good looking…. Moral: Clamp your workpieces. Lesson learned, here!

I also agree—there’s a wonderful satisfaction from the tss-thunk of a pneumatic nailer putting that nail exactly where you wanted it.
