    Gauging it on injuries received my most dangerous tool would have to be my angle grider. Pushed the start button once while my thumb knuckle was on the blade and had it slip off a tile once and do the same thumb.
     

  2. When you say most dangerous tool.

    Does it include the operator of the tools ? :eek:


    Because I may just have an example or 2

    Never in 35 years use, have I had an accident with grinder.:eek:

    Regardless of the tool, always respect it.

    You're not wrong kiab. Using an angle grinder up a ladder stretching off the side with no guard on it while smashed out my face on vodka wasn't my best idea haha
     

  9. What like picking up my cordless drill with drill bit in it, by the drill bit and catching the trigger?

    And then dropping it?

    On my foot ?

    I have never nailed my finger with a nail fun but I know two less that have. I have never jig sewed my finger but know less who have. Go figure.

    I know of two idiots who put a grinder through their foot, one I saw & it wasn't a pretty sight.

    Most dangerous power tool either disc cutter 'running away', or circular saw kickback, worst injury sustained from either inadequately sharpened Marples chisel nearly taking the tip of finger off whilst paring oak, or different finger exploding after glancing off a stud with a 30oz estwing. Though the common denominator in these escapades is the incompetent operator rushing at the time, me.
