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.
