    Coconut shell stripper - GIF

    Coconut shell stripper. And I believe we have a new contender for Most Dangerous Tool.

    I guess I would be the only person to starve to death stranded on an Island full of coconuts. There is not a single coconut product or by product that has or will ever be in my home. just the smell of coconut makes me gag.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    I wouldn’t care to bet that the person who sold that machine has a hand missing.

    That is the scariest machine, it will pull you in, and eat you.

    Saw stop adapted to coconut stop? Oops that's right won't in high moisture situations.

    I especially like the wrist watch with the safety quick release (not).

    And wearing a wristwatch while operating it? Shirt untucked? This person can’t even spell OSHA! Bless his heart, as we say here in Alabama. We’ve all got to make a living, but a job without any more protection than that will make an injury or a death as quickly as it makes a living.
    Sorry if I’ve overreacted on this. I teach high school students to run lathes and mills and this is, as some of my students say' “triggering” my inner safety inspector!

    Who wants to wager whether or not the machine operator is wearing safety glasses or hearing protection? Anyone?
