    True.
    Sometimes you have to use a tool as it was not intended to get something done, sometimes things are out of your control ( a nail deflecting off a knot and shooting through your thumb for e.g.)
    You can only be as careful as you can be

    Fair point. Still some tools I'll never even consider using for anything other than it's intended purpose. Angle grinder is a perfect example.

    Mine so far has been a pair of work boots with slippy soles in combination with a damp path and a kerb.

    starting a grinder while the blade is on your thumb is down to rushing and not paying attention.

    Agree with some on here(except the mockers of course-get a life) that the most dangerous tool is the idiot using it(mention no names). chippie
