     Safety First!

Keep your tools sharp! Blunt tools are dangerous as they require more pressure and can be unpredictable.

Check your lathe speed BEFORE you turn on the lathe. It is always SAFER to ensure your lathe starts at a LOW speed.

As always, be sure to wear a good dust mask as wood dust is harmful to your body.
