Shop safety


Recommended Posts

I had my first woodworking accident today! And it wasn't even really woodworking related.

As i had posted in another thread i'm redoing the ducting for my dust collection.

I had an elbow connected to my DC and was about the attach the first main line piece, when I tripped on a piece of flexhose i had on the floor (before debating whether or not i should move it) and went right into the duct elbow calf first! funtimes!

Nothing a little gauze and polysporin won't fix. But let's hope it's my first and LAST injury.

D'oh! Hope it heals up quickly. If it leaves a scar, post a picture and challenge us to make up a great story of what really happened.

Clutter and forgotten items on the floor are why I'm even anal about wearing safety glasses while doing glue-ups or taking off the clamps... so many pointy bars around eye level that I could take an eye out quickly.
