Probably a lathe, angle grinder with a zip cut, or skill saw. I personally hate rouers after seeing the aftermath of what one can do to your hand, but the most dangerous tool is gonna be the one retards feel confident using

Feel like a pussy but I agree, something about my saw scares the shit out of me. I’m getting a radial arm saw soon for free and fee much better using that.

I honestly feel like a boxcutter or pocket knife probably cause more injuries than any other tools... Maybe a pick or screwdriver when you're pushing against something that you're holding and it slips and you end up stabbing yourself in the hand!

The most gruesome injuries would probably have to go to the grinder, tablesaw, and lathe though...

You shake hands with every tool in the shop after you have seen your coworker lose an arm in the metal lathe.

Mate, pull one of these numbers on a flathead or two (maybe at a shallower angle as the photo though). Seriously, shit stops the driver from going through your hand. Still hurts, but doesn't pierce the skin. Also stops you from using to drive screws for whatever wicked reason, it truly is the devil's tool.

radial arm saw.

when I was in shop class in 7th and 8th grade it was the only tool we were not allowed to use because of it's tendency to grab and walk over the wood you were cutting and race right for you.

This. There’s no such thing as a dangerous machine. Only dangerous operators.

This always puzzled me. I have yet to see a modern jointer that has a better guard system than my jointer from the '60s.

Same with drill presses, band saws, lathes, etc. The only real development I have seen in the last 50 years has been the SawStop and the fact that all the dumb boomers are retired so they stop taking the fucking guards off of things now.
>>

Should have told your shop teacher to sharpen his fucking blades then.

What's wrong with a jointer's guard? I'd say its pretty protective.

Exactly. >>1957482 was saying older models are less safe than newer ones. What changed? My 60's jointer has the same kind of guard as modern ones.

has nothing to do with it. same thing would happen at a place that made exhibits and crates. sharp or not.
>>
>>1957228
These things are hilarious, the bounce forward on them if they hang up on a tough bit of wood will 'unman you' in the cruellest cuts of all, if it doesn't disembowel or lop off a hand.
Used to live near a sawmill and they had a very large one with a 15hp motor hanging off it and you could count how many years someone had worked at the mill by how many fingers they're missing.

Its a dremel, if you are using it correctly, you can blow up those shitty little wheels all day long and be fine. You are supposed to be out of the line of fire if they blow up. Sticking your face near the wheel just means you are a retard.

I know that fucking feel.

Table saws 'can' be safe with any jig or push block that keep your fingers ≥ 4in(100mm) away from the blade and your body out of the way from kickback. Even thin rip jigs can be made that require no fingers ever come near the blade. What worries me about vintage table saws is that the blade position is so far away is than one could lead over too much and fall into it,
>>
>>1957044
>Angle grinder and chainsaw are both on the same level
Both are way more dangerous than a tablesaw.

Deaths from table saws are rare as fuck, although they can and have happened. Either from a severe injury, were the injured person doesn’t get medical help and bleeds out, or from really bad kickback injuries that cause internal trauma. Still rare as fuck though.

Chainsaw injuries are more common, and usually involve kickback, With severe laceration injury, laceration from grabbing the saw wrong, etc.

Angle grinder injuries usually involve grinding or cutting discs shattering, which can lead to death if the fractured disc segments wind up in a persons skull or chest(yes this happens and results in death)
Also, severe lacerations and severed fingers.
Wire wheels can get caught in clothing, and tear a chunk of flesh out.

There are two major differences in jointers nowadays.
The first is the type of guards.
Newer higher end jointers are mostly European made, and use a guard that gets fixed in place over the cutterhead, and you raise and lower the guard to feed the wood thru.
Older US jointers tended to use a guard that would swing out of the way as the wood got pushed over the cutterhead.
Whether the newer guards are safer, I don’t know, but the swivel action on the older guards always seemed non intuitive to me.

The other major change is the cutterhead design.
Newer cutterheads are limited in the size of the gap between the end of the feed table and the cutterhead.
This small gap on the newer machines helps limit the amount of flesh that can get removed in a single Spin of the cutterhead, and helps prevent the knives from grabbing and pulling fingers into the cutterhead.
Also, older cutterheads not only had a larger gap between the cutterhead and the feed tables, the cutterheads themselves were sometimes square or rectangular, Making the ability to grab errant fingers way more likely.
Newer machines tend to have cutterheads that are much closer to round, and sometimes also have smaller Tersa type knives, or many small insert type knives.

Both of the safety features go back a couple decades or more, but Jointers tend to last 50 years or more,
even in industrial settings,
so older machines were and still sometimes are still in use, particularly given the cost of a long wide jointer.

Recently saw a video of a dude getting chunked and sprayed across the shop by one of these machines. They're no joke. Worst part? It spun his arm in and held him there for 5 seconds or so before it yanked the rest of him in and painted the walls with hamburger and gristle.

When you work around equipment for years and years, you do the shtty daily grind of getting up and going to work every single, you get lazy and complacent sometimes.
In rare instances it bites you in the ass, sometimes it even kills you

Rotating shafts in general are dangerous. God knows how many people have been sucked into power transmissions before guarding became common. A lathe is one that must be exposed to work (plus 3 down by your balls that may or may not be shrouded). There's also the bonus hazards of throwing work or a key. Or sharp ribbon chips if your material or lack of chip management produces it.
