You know Jan, this one is almost finished. So it isn’t too early to start thinking about what you will build next?

Thanks for the great advice . . . but it’s 11 days too late!

This photo was taken 5 days after the accident. It’s healing and I’m back out in the shop . . . heeding your advice!

Great tip Jan. Another useful idea is to buy those rubber things for your finger tips. They are designed to give the fingers traction for leafing through paper or counting money, etc., but I use them sometimes to protect my finger tips while disk sanding.
