I think it's good I'm a little afraid of my power tools. It keeps me on the straight and narrow with them.
It is definitely good to have a healthy level of fear for things that can remove limbs or kill you.

I think respect for the tools is better than fearing them. Same with a gun. I don't fear guns whatsoever, but I definetly respect them and what they can do.

Exactly. Fear of something can get you killed by it just as easy....saws in particular since you have to have a firm grip on it and not a fish grip or a death grip. Both things will get you hurt BADLY by both of them things.

Fear is good. How you handle fear is respect insofar as power tools and guns, etc are concerned.

Good point as well. I know you've seen people handle a saw like I'm referring to though. Those that either limp arm/grip it allowing it to go wherever it can or those that lock down on it so hard it has no other course than to come back on em

I have some serious road rage going on today.... I'm so sick of people who live in a state where it snows but can't drive in it.

A can of ether and a Isuzu inline 6 is a terrifying thing also , specially when your shop mate grabs you and you both start digging trying to get away from it and the shrapnel coming off of it .
A intercooler on a NPR can hold about 2 cans of ether before it reaches the turbo then you have less than 4 seconds till Hiroshima

I have long known not to use ether on any modern diesel (especially those with intercoolers), and on the antiques I will only let the can whisper its contents near the air filter. That is more than enough........

What I do instead of ether is to take a shop rag and put a little gasoline in it, the hold that over the air intake. It works well unless the temperature is too cold for the gas to evaporate.
