I take it you're a mechanical engineer then?


I am not studying mechanical. I am studying electrical and electronics engineering, and it is compulsory for all departments to attend workshop in the first year.

PJ, little bro, a word of advice with saws: just don't. But if you really have to, my experience suggests that (contrary to all sense) they work better and faster if you don't apply maximum pressure


But ding, there is less time, and more cutting, and I can finish on time only by applying max force and doing it fast. Btw, did you also suffer the same situation in university?

No, I never had to take shop in school. My education in the proper use of tools came much later.

But just give it a try, once. Try not using max force and speed. I bet the cut will grow faster as the saw moves slower

Wise words no matter the situation.

Nope, the more slower you do, more the downward force needs to be applied.

I don't know, maybe it's not such a bad idea, having a practical skill. Or at least some experience at something practical as a bit of balance.

Would be a shame though to lose your fingers in acquiring that skill. So be more careful

For your poor big sister stuck many thousands of miles away hearing about your injuries without being able to tend them, just trust me on this. The cutting will go faster if don't push so hard. It's a miracle of saws.

At the very least, you will waste less time tending cuts and bruises on your fingers

Yep. Maybe just for practical knowledge, it has been made compulsory. Dont worry about safety. I am very paranoid when it comes to sharp objects, and I always keep extra distance from the blades, though things like this tend to happen.

I see, Ill try this next time.

I let them heal on their own. But I make sure, the wound doesnt get infected.
