7 safety rules to never violate
Inspect your tools
Check every tool before use, even if you were the last to use it: Look for debris near the cutterhead or blade and any loose or misaligned parts that could become projectiles when you turn the tool on. Keep blades sharp and clean: Forcing a workpiece through a dull and dirty blade increases the risk of a hand slipping (and may cause burns and tearout on your workpiece, too).
