Cutting a board
I tried to cut a board (cut my 24x36 in two) with a hacksaw blade in a holder that has the end stick out about 4". It was a pain as the blade wanted to bend and catch. The board cut OK, but raggedly.
So tonight my husband volunteered to cut another board on the table saw. I was holding my breath as I was picturing chips and gouges. He brought it in and OMG it is perfect. The edges are crisp and sharp, need to be sanded a little for that rounded effect.
I am in shorts and scratched an itch and it felt like tape on my inner leg. Huh? I wasn't using tape at the moment, but you know how supplies go everywhere after packing stuff for a show. Well, when I pulled it off I realized it was a 1/2"x1" piece of my skin!! YIKES!! The board had rested on my leg while I swiped the debris off of it from the sawing, and apparently it is sharp enough to peel off the top layer of skin. Be careful, people!!!
