    Will someone please devise a guard for that spike, perhaps a bottomless shopping trolley!

    Folks in other countries think of safety in a different way. Also we have no idea if that spike is removable. I think it is.

    most anything can hurt you...even you. as with everything you need just a tad of brains to operate most everything.sadly there are many that lack brains enough to pour piss out of a boot if the instructions are written on the sole of the heal.to farther complicate things the same people seem to wright instructions for many things.

    It's amazingly easy to husk a coconut. Plenty of room. And if you do it constantly, it just becomes easier. I never hit my hands doing it so I doubt anyone else would do it. Yes, stuff happens, but not as frequently as one would think.

    If you used a machine like that on Australian ironbark, you WOULD be wearing it every time.
