Something about band saws that has always stuck in my mind.
My 8th grade shop teacher told us about a freak accident that took place years before. Someone was standing on the side of the saw watching a demonstration, the blade broke, flew out, and stabbed him in the chest. Ever since I was told this, I have always advised anybody in my shop to never stand on the side of the saw. Also many years later my old safety conscious instructor lost a finger on the band saw.
