Don't just chuck your scrap in
a pile in the corner. Keep your
floors cleaner and pieces
separated with this cutoff bin.

Keep it clean

If your shop has a layer of sawdust as thick as urethane on a gym floor, that dust presents a slipping hazard. Sweep it up. Also, dispose or store loose cutoffs and tools not in use. Clear off machines before use and make sure there's nothing that may shift into your cutting path or the blade during the machine's operation.

Staying mentally sharp is my favorite and very important. Working when tired can cause carelessness. Also don't work when upset. I did once...once. My mother was ill, and called me while I was in the shop. After I hung up I went back to the table saw, and was thinking so much about what was going on with her, that I nearly separated two finger tips from my hand. I had to take a trip to ER, and everything turned out fine, but the lesson was painfully learned.
