Re: [genpcncfir] All is well after Isabel
- Dear Rhet, I'm reminded by your mention of damage to
give a warning. One of the deaths here in the Richmond
area in the aftermath of Isabel was that of a man in
his 30's killed from the kickback of his electric
powered saw--skill saw. It is correctly named. When
that saw kicks back, it cuts whatever is in its path.
The Times Dispatch all too vividly described this
man's final moments. Then today one of our Security
guards comes in with a horrible gash on his leg where
his skill saw kicked back. Home alone, he had to move
his tractor that was blocking his truck in order to
drive himself to the emergency room. This man is a
genius with woodwork and often brings his art to
school to display. Skill saws have no respect for
anyone regardless of his level of skill; maybe that is
why they are called "skill" saws. I've done all my own
sawing using an ordinary one-man saw despite the work
because I do know how to use it and I know equally
well that I do not have the knowledge and skill to use
a skill saw. Add to that, the accident factor inherent
in the skill saw, and I am not willing to take a
chance. I want to beg any of you, regardless of skill
level, who are using skill saws not to use them when
working alone. The life you save may be your own. When
weighing the risks, hire a professional rather than
take chances. Your loved ones will also thank you.
