Safety first !

When using power tools like lathe drill-press,chop-saw and table-saw never wear loose clothing or jewelry and if you are a long haired hippie keep your hair tied back .

A face shield and quality respirator should always be worn when working on a lathe . It only takes a micro second to lose a hand or an eye .

When sanding on a lathe always move the tool rest as far away as possible to avoid lose of fingers .

When using a table saw to rip down stock to turning blanks always place the blade no more than 1/8 of an inch above your stock and always use a push stick .

Wood dust is very toxic along with lead so a quality respirator and proper dust collection system are two must have items .

Never eat ,drink or smoke when working with lead and if lead is being melted make sure to have proper ventilation

Luckily I haven't made any of those mistakes and I still have 10 fingers :lol:

But I have had my share of accidents like drove my index finger into a band saw blade , been hit in the face while using the lathe ,got epoxy in my mouth and poured molten plastic on my hand :o

I know a few experienced wood workers who have lost fingers or finger tips so be extra careful.
