Safety Tip: When to Walk Away


When I walk into my shop, I put on my safety glasses. This isn't the "tip", just a smart practice.

My tip is that I feel the slightest discomfort with a cut on the table saw, a pass on the router table, or any other procedure; I walk away and think of another way to accomplish the task. Often, my discomfort arises from making a cut on a small piece of wood. My usual solution is to use double sided tape to attach the small piece to a much larger piece. That way my fingers are out of the way and the chances of a kick back are minimized.
