Cutting tools such as hole saws, carbide burs, and jobber bits are a great addition to your home equipment for DIY projects. However, these cutting tools can be hazardous when used improperly. Here are some safety precautions to adhere to when using cutting tools at home.
- Wear personal protective equipment when using cutting tools, e.g. gloves and safety glasses.
- Don’t use a cutting tool for any other purpose other than that it’s intended for.
- Since metal can fly when cut causing injuries, wrap your cutting jaws using a cloth or rag.
- Lubricate your cutter’s moving parts.
