    No i'm not psycho, i can't seem to get my crew to take safety seriously. I would like to use the classic drivers ed approach and show them pics of what really happens when you hit your foot with a blade going 17,000 fps. If anybody has any or knows where to find them that would be awesome!!

    No pics but this could work.

    Tie a chicken wing to a piece of twine and tie that to a rake handle. Run over the wing with an engaged lawn mower. Disengage the mower or pull out the wing rapidly. You can imagine what the wing looks like. Relate this to a finger or toe. 5000rpm doesn't leave alot of reaction time.
    Hope it helps.
