I’ve been in the trade over 40 years and I’ve never seen a tradesman do such a thing. Too much like tempting fate I suppose. Usually, the occasional and simple, ” mind your fingers” to the apprentices is enough.

Had a close call once. Lost a little tip of my finger. I’m super carful nowadays.

+1 Texcaster. No one I ever knew in the shipyards would do that. Tempting fate as he says.

Never work with a carpenter with electrical tape on his power cords . . .

It wasn’t a shipyard, it was a Woodworking 101 class . . .

I’m reminded of Riley on the Bob Vila show seemed like every episode he had a finger taped up.

I used to LMAO they never mentioned it but you knew the guy had to be a little clumsy.
