To expand on this topic:

I recall reading recently that there are now much, much safer power tools
available that can, amazingly, stop almost instantly if they sense cutting
something like a finger--anything other than wood, plastic, or steel.   I
remember that these tools cost rougly $100 more each, but they would
certainly be worth it, in my opinion, since even highly experienced adults
can make a mistake.  Having only such tools in the workshop might
significantly reduce insurance costs.
