Well, I don't build much but I do household repairs when and if I can. I thought a saw would come in handy.......like when I wanted to put those shelves up in my garage. I do have some power tools, my favorite being my Skil Drill with lots of bells and whistles. But the saw just scares me. I don't think I know how to properly use it and I don't have saw horses or a vice to hold whatever I'm trying to cut.

Yeah, sure, I can get hurt with my drill, but not like I could with a saw.

My mom tried to perform open heart surgery on herself with a grinder. At least, that's what it looked like.

I'm usually OK with power tools; the only stitches i've ever gotten (aside from some dental work) were to fix my thumb after a razor scraper incident in high school. I finished the trophy order before going to the hospital, though.

You can get hurt with a screw driver... I put one through the palm of my hand once.

I've never hurt myself with my power or air tools.

I dont blame you for being cautious, yes you need saw horses and or a big bench and clamps or that saw can be a Grizzly Bear!

I would start with a Nerf Circular Saw Blade, if that goes OK, Move up to a nice sharp Carbide, the dull steel teeth really make a hell of a mess!

I think the reason I've never been hurt with any power tools or pneumatic tools is I am more careful with them.

But you know how to use the power tools. I'm not exactly sure the proper way to use a power saw or how to secure what I'm cutting, etc. I would have to watch someone using one for a while to learn the right way.

Air tools? Cripes, I could only dream of that. I'm not even sure what they are or if I'd ever have any use for them. I don't think I would.

Today is my future DIL's birthday. My son woke up at 0445 to make her pancakes, sausage, eggs and toast. There was a bouquet of lillies on the breakfast tray. He sent flowers to her work (us ladies like that so we can 'show off' our significant other sent us flowers). And she's getting a smart phone upgrade today.

My son is awesome. But then again, we'll check back after they've been married 15 years. LOL My future DIL is a lovely young lady and I like her very much.

It's been my experience that you are more likely to be hurt with a hand tool, than a power tool. The reason for this is because we are more careful around power tools because we know they can eff us up bad. Most hand tools can't hurt us as bad as a power tool can.
That's not to say hand tools can't eff us up too. and awe can easilly go all the way through your hand, and a chisel can easily cut deep enough to expose bone (ever here the term scary sharp? On a chisel, that means you can SHAVE with it)

I agree. I think my 'danger' is not enough knowledge. Just like you wouldn't put a gun in the hands of someone who's never been instructed how to handle one properly. That's me with a power saw.
