What not to do in a workshop…….

Well I guess we have all done it.   That reflex reaction that has saved many an iphone, plate or cup.  You brush it off the desk or table and catch up just before it hits the ground.  Well, if that concrete floor bound item happens to be a 1 inch mortising chisel, pray that your reflexes on that day are not as fast as usual.  Otherwise you will end up with about a 2 inch gash right across the palm of your hand.  At which point you will utter many profane words (optional but satisfying), walk upstairs leaving a trail of blood and be greeted by your family all pointing out that you are leaving a trail of blood (why do our darling families love to state the obvious?) and that you need to go to the ER.  How do I know this you may ask…….?
