Turning wood into shavings - if you live long enough!
« on: January 20, 2020, 10:51:45 PM »

Nothing to do with model boats, but if anyone has dabbled with woodturning, they might want to take a look at this!  A few innocuous bits to start with, but the fun really gets going just after 3 minutes into the video.   %% %% %%

My dear old Dad would suggest wearing of either PVC and cotton gloves when wood turning was not really a good idea  <*<  ............ Derek

Wow


The first guy seriously needs to be told about plywood to stop him wasting all that wood but the second guy- how he isnít dead surprises me, surely at least a broken arm or wrist from his actions.


Thanks for sharing- it makes me look relatively normal! {-)

There at huge volumes of Health and Safety paperwork covering Industry and Education. Meanwhile in Units and Sheds worldwide, people dice with death everyday.

Most of our workshops could happily double as torture chambers given the range of sharp and blunt intruments they contain.

The main problem is inconsistency.  We allow students to use band saws after training but not circular saws (our insurers would have a fit!)  However, the student could go down to Screwfix or Machine Mart and buy a circular saw to use at home without any experience or training.

You or anyone can buy a huge range of saws, drills, all powered, with your groceries and wine from Aldi
Lidl or even the bigger supermarkets at times. I am
amazed they don't sell personal protection right beside them, but perhaps no one is interested so not profitable.
