I found this information whilst checking the news

Wife Tries To Behead Sleeping Husband With Power Saw: Police

A Washington woman is behind bars after allegedly attempting to behead her sleeping husband with a reciprocating saw.

When officers with the Everett police arrived at the couple’s home on Friday night, they found blood on the carpet and walls and a bloody man who was shouting “it was you, it was you” at his wife, according to a police document obtained by KIRO TV.

“You tried to cut my head off, you’re going to jail,” the man screamed, the affidavit notes.

The 36-year-old victim reportedly told police that he awoke to find his wife cutting his throat with a Sawzall — a power tool that can cut through wood, plastic and even metal, if outfitted with the right blade.

The man, who sustained cuts to his neck and upper shoulder, also told investigators that his 43-year-old wife attacked him with a hatchet.

The suspect admits using the reciprocating saw, but told police she only picked it up to attack an intruder who had broken into their home and escaped through a window in a child’s bedroom, The Herald reports.

Police say the window is outfitted with a child lock, which keeps it from opening more than a few inches.

“There was no evidence there was an intruder,” Everett police Sgt. Robert Goetz told the paper.

Investigators found a bloody reciprocating saw on the bedroom floor and a hatchet, which was still wet, seemingly fresh from a wash, atop an upper shelf in the kitchen, according to The Herald.

The suspect is under investigation of first-degree domestic violence assault and is being held in lieu of $250,000 bail.

No doubt his woodworking activities pissed her off somehow.

So some do not do this at home tips:

Dont saw up wood and do sanding next to the clothes line with washing on it
Dont go inside dropping a trail of sawdust to just check funny blog stuff on LJs
Dont leave the air compressor pluged in so it cranks up in the middle of the night frightening the bejesus out of everybody
Dont leave polishing stuff in reach of grandkids when they visit
Dont disconnect the washing machine pump out hose then forget to reconnect it so it sprays water all over your tools

and

Do keep your reciprocating saw and hatchets hidden from view

That’s a pretty specific lists of “Don’ts”, Rob. Somehow I thought you were older than 36. Your neck and shoulder should heal soon. Merry Christmas!

I found the story on fox 8 Cleveland, and there is some other really scary stuff going on in that area

Is there a toxic waste dump or something like that nearby.

Also found this header.

In other words… lock up your tools into a secure tool box and sleep with it under your pillow… keep one good eye open... and… keep the brown eye shut!

#4, now you may realise why I hate reading…. To avoid dire news, I can always switch the TV off, but it’s hard not to read the newspaper wrapping while eating your fish and chips!

pottzy, just don’t let her find out about cordless then!

PS. Convert your compressor to battery powered… It’s not that it’ll be silent but the juice will run out quicker then the electrons from the power grid!

OK Robert, as gruesome as that was, I laughed a lot at the list, but then Candy, I almost fell over. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go lock up the sharp stuff. Merry Christmas. :)

Hey pottzy, I’m not trying to encroach on your territory or play havoc with your tranquility… You just sounded so complacent, I wanted to give you a lesson in fear like all us woodworkers that just have a god fearing wife and not the electric fearing type.

Rob, my condolences on your recent brush with death… hopefully you have a quick recovery. ;+D

BTW – there is another lesson that can be learned here. Don’t bring your power tools into the house, let alone the bedroom.
