Anybody else ever notice this phenomenon? I used 90deg square gravers almost exclusively for about 35 yrs, and during that time I might have stuck a chip in my finger a couple times a year. It virtually never happened. I used to walk around my workshop barefoot in the warmer months without a problem. However, about 4-5 yrs ago I made the transition to a 120 and if I'm engraving a lot, it's rare to go one day without having to pull a chip out of myself somewhere!!! Silver, steel, whatever- it doesn't matter. The difference is so stark, it cannot possibly be just a case of heightened perception. I finally remembered to post this when I lanced my left index finger a few minutes ago- a phlebotomist could have gotten all they need for any tests...
