beware the cat
This from a site that sells knife supplies and custom knives. The owner is man enough to admit his mistakes as lessons for others. This one is particularly interesting and a good lesson. Despite the fact I very much dislike cats, this was probably a pretty traumatic incident for all involved.
Safety isn't for humans only. Make sure your workshop is clear of family pets while running power tools . When I started up my table saw, I didn't notice that the family cat was asleep on a high shelf above. The noise startled her her and she jumped down onto the spinning blade. Yeow! Besides being traumatic, this cost me over $600 bucks in vet bills. Sigh. Very unhappy kitty.
