Title: So What Are Power Tools?


1
So what are power tools?
2
At one time we referred to machines only as
machines. There was no other term used to
describe them. Something shifted in the US and
manufacturers of deadly machines changed the term
machine to, you guessed it, Power Tools.
3
Power tools are what get the job done and get it
done yesterday. Faster, more efficient, easier,
accurate are all terms used to describe this
modern-day phenomenon. We never use other terms
like dirty, dusty, invasive, non-creative, loud,
damaging, unsafe, harmful and dozens more that
equally inform us of truths we should know about
the power tools.
Most woodworkers relying on this category of
so-called tools fail to realize that this type of
tool, which is nothing more than
a glorified machine, not only dumbs down
woodworking, but eliminates children from the
workshop.

So, I conclude that power tool woodworking and
the New Yankee Workshop has served only to
disempower children. Children find no place in
the machine-only workshop and therefor to call
them power tools serves only the cause of
mass-machine makers and not the cause of getting
the next generation of woodworkers into the
woodshop.
