This is the first time I’ve seen mention of an apron as a safety device.

I assume the idea is that it would soften the blow from a kick-back?

I dunno. Everyone has to draw their own “safety box”. Mine has been called into question here. I don’t really want to do that to someone else. Each of us has to consider both the up-side and the down-side to each aspect of safety in our shops.

For me I’m not really worried about any event that I’m almost certain to heal from completely. That’s really where I draw the line. Loosing some fingers or an eye…or discovering a few years down the road that I’m going to have to give up breathing…these things I take more seriously.

When it comes to a situation where it’s going to hurt like hell for a few minutes, or might even require a bandaid and a stiff drink…I’m less concerned about those.
