    Default kids and tools

    Saw this over on the Hobart site and thought you should see what can happen when you leave kids unsupervised with your tools. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kaOEmDJUNmM

    Well, yes, actually the reallity of the topic makes you shake your head and expect the worst, IMO. The video is funny, (Already sent the link to all my friends) but when kids and power tools get together unsupervised there is always a potential for disaster. Remember it has taken years for most of us to keep our fingers and eyes, kids don't have the experience yet. (:

    I'm talking more along the lines of young kids... Not up and coming adults. I have no problem with young people learning and being inspired. I wish I had the resources available to me to learn a trade and do it safely when I was a young teen. I certainly would be working on retiring a lot sooner.

    Weld 13,

    That's what I did. I split up my grade 11 and 12 years, and went for a semester of college for each of the two years (for free), graduating high school with a welding ticket, going straight into the working world after graduating. Basically a garanteed job, and the start of a good carreer. About fifteen years ago the adverage starting age for a person getting into a trade was 27. I don't know what the adverage age is now, but those starting much earlier can look back when they hit the adverage age and see how much further they are ahead.
