My family long ago learned that I wasn’t to be disturbed when I was running a tool. I always told them to move into my field of vision and wait for me to stop whatever I was doing before saying anything.

This lesson came hard for #2 daughter, however. One day I was cutting something on my radial arm saw and she came up behind me and grabbed my legs (she was only about 5 yrs old). I’m not sure how I managed it, but I just froze, turned off the saw, and turned around. All I could see was a mop of blond hair and the biggest blue eyes ever. She was petrified!! I gave her the infamous “look” and said “Don’t EVER do something like that again”.

She stayed far away from the shop for a couple of weeks, and when she started coming back, she would carefully move into view and wait for me to say something.
