I have a hodgepodge of power tools but never went for the "big time" with rotating saw blades. I am a huge safety fanatic though, so we'll probably have training classes before firing up the blades and cutting things.
Dave, that is a good idea. I cut off a third of one finger past the joint, and the tip of another with an electric planer when I was a youth. Lesson learned...listen to your GrandDad when he says not to mess with the tools when he is not there.

I sure hope this mess stabilizes soon.

Looks like we will close under 8,000 today.

Dave have fun with the new stuff for your shop. I am lucky I still have all of my fingers and other parts. I would say about 95% of the accidents my employee had when I had a company, were due to over time.... do not work when you are tired.. or in a hurry.

Thanks for the coaching, Gary. Fatigue is a factor in too many industrial accidents.

So the Dow is under 8000. Only by a couple points, but things like this carry that psychological factor that says "well, if we slid under 7000 can 6000 be far behind?" I am really worried about this stuff feeding on itself and creating deflation (not depression) when it otherwise wouldn't happen. Deflation is bad too.

I'm sitting here laughing in a sort-of maniacal way. The Dow is under 8000, my portfolio continues to dwindle in value, and I look up at the TV and see a Mercedes-Benz commercial touting a new lease program for a C-series. It's like "yeah man, I'll be right down to sign the papers, got loads of money to spend."

What makes it worse is the days ending earlier. I am one of those who gets depressed when daylight becomes shorter and the nights longer.

And then comes the management of the Big 3 - flying into DC on private jets to beg for a piece of our tax money to "bail them out".

It knocked me right back to 2003. I've got to stop asking, "how much worse could it get?"

Sure picked a great year to retire. Who knew back in January? I was at an all-time high last October!

I am too. And when things are not going well it just adds to it. It's like I get out of sync or something. And then add all these new worries on top of it. It get's hard to put a smile on my face when I don't feel that way inside.

I keep trying though.

Wow! It barely broke the skin of that hot dog. I guess you have to replace the emergency stop piece, but I'd gladly do that rather than lose a finger.
