    A gentle reminder..

    I got a gentle reminder last night to always always always use a brush and not your hand to clean off tool (and bench) surfaces.

    Was changing over my J/P and had the table up, guards away (as they must be during the flip) and there was a bit of chips left where the planer guard would set so I quickly brushed it off before setting it down.... and caught the tip on one finger on the end of a planer knife. Not real deep or serious but enough for a good reminder. I knew better to

    I think the next time I'm at HF I'll invest in a couple more brushes to hang in handy places around the shop.

    Ryan, I bought one of those from HF and wish I had three more of them. They work well and can be used lots of places.

    Glad you didnt get hurt too bad.

    Unfortunately I think many of us have had these "little" reminders about brushing shavings or sawdust away...Those tools cut so quickly and so efficiently.


    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
