I found some Halloween stick-on props at a local store. They’re removable in order to put on the wall or other places when decorating for Tricks or Treat-ers. But, I put one on my bandsaw in my shop as a reminder to watch carefully around this tool. When I was a kid, my father lost three fingers on a bandsaw in a work accident, so I’ve always been very aware of the consequences!

-- I did measure it twice, it's still too short.

You can make it more vivid by cutting off one of the fingers.

Interesting idea though. I’ll definitely look out for those.

Very sick and twisted- I love it! The fact the it can be moved around helps fight that point where you don’t notice it anymore. Gotta find some of these.
