Men misusing power tools

Mike Rowe, star of Dirty Jobs, once said that safety isn't Job 1. Getting the job done is Job 1.  Safety is, like, Job 3.

To that end, when I needed a piece of steel cut, and James couldn't find his angle grinder, we improvised with a reciprocating saw and some pliers.

After wearing out three blades and doing some pounding and swearing and making the dogs nervous, James's wife, Kyndal, found the angle grinder and we finished the job in a few seconds. No fingers were severed.
