Accross the whole engineering/woodworking sphere in the Uk the drill
press has the most injury incidents. Having had one throw a pound of
cast iron at me, that was clamped, I can well believe it....
My personal vote is for hand chisels and utility knives. I've never
hurt myself with a power tool, but I've got a whole pile of scars from
neander tools. A properly sharpened chisel will hit bone before you
even know you slipped. (I've got a fingertip on my left hand that is
still aching like mad after almost a month)
They're all dangerous- it just depends on who you are, and what you're

Before it was Yuppieized it was called "common sense", and IIRC, our
8th grade Metal & Wood Shop teacher, Mr. Workman, presented it to us
something like this:
"Pay Attention, Dipsticks! You'll -need- those fingers and hands for
the rest of your lives."
Yes. Use whatever works!

That's a pretty tough story to believe - at least considering what tools
I use to drill holes and how I do it. I'm thinking something is missing
from the explanation - like the Ryan chucked the crate to the drill
chuck while holding the bit stationary...
