For me, the scariest tool is a circle cutter, in drill-press mode. It definitely has it’s uses, but I will only use mine in concert with my speed reducer, at 100 RPM. And even then, I clamp the workpiece very securely, wear goggles, and I don’t get any closer to it than the power switch and the quill-feed lever.
The one time I came close to needing stitches wasn’t even with a power tool. It was with a sharp chisel, and I was using it improperly. But I got lucky, and only did Band-aid class damage to myself. Now I have plenty of respect for edge tools as well.

Edge Jointing is a bit different but still demands respect.
