The Shopsmith 5 Piece Safety Kit: The Finger Keepers!

Post by Chad »

My Growth Rings with Scott Markwood

SHOP NOTES: I realized that the first upload of this vid was missing all the B-role action! Since the 1980's Shopsmith has been producing what to me are the best pieces of shop safety equipment available. Yes, the Microjig "GRR-RIPPER" is a superior push block, but if you already have this Shopsmith kit I encourage you to use it. In this video, I pantomime the use of this kit, and in the near future, we'll replace this vid with these tools in action.

The Shopsmith five-piece safety kit that Shopsmith has been providing with each Mark V and Mark 7 since the mid-80’s contains: 1 Push stick, one feather board, one fence straddled and a pair of push blocks. In March of 1985, Shopsmith was honored during the National Safety Council's 1984 Awards for Achievement in Product Safety Consumer Product Category for the development of the Shopsmith Safety Kit... a set consisting of four ingenious devices that have often been copied by others. The objective of this program is to recognize organizations which have significantly contributed to public safety.
