Hi! I’m Charles McMahon on behalf of Expert Village. I am going to talk about how the safety measures you have to go through using this machine. The first thing you have to do is use safety glasses; preferably ones that go around the side. It is also recommended that you wear gloves that fit tightly and also, clothing that is not loose so it doesn’t get caught any place. Also, you want to make sure that you don’t put your hand in this space in between here at any time and when you are operating it, you always operate it from behind using this lever. Also, you don’t want to have any children or pets or anybody else anywhere around this thing because wood splinters could fly off and hurt somebody. This is a one man operation, so you don’t want anybody else trying to help you with this.
