I bought 6 Dewalt 6" angle grinders from a big fab shop a few years ago. All of them had switches that locked in the on position they had a total power failure in the shop one day and when the power came back on a few went running across the fab tables. One hit one of the guys and cut him. They got rid of every power tool with a locking switch after that. We take for granted how easy it is to get hurt with the tools we use every day

JR Back in the mid seventies my father didn't have a lot of power tools but one was a huge aluminum case angle grinder that someone gave him. This thing had the switch that looked like a rod sticking up in the handle push it down for on and up for off. I went to use it one day and sat it on top of a brand new chest freezer my dad had bought from Sears. Plugged an extension cord into the grinder and then walked across the garage to plug it in and off the grinder went chewing the top'm of that freezer up kinda running around in a half circle. I panic and run across the garage to try and shut it off instead of just pulling the cord out of the socket. Freezer now has at least 20 nice gouges ground into the top of it. My dad never cussed but he came close that day. The grinder disappeared the next week replaced with one with a trigger switch.Some years back the old freezer quit and my brother and I went to help Dad unload the new one my Dad looked at the old one and said to me. Boy you remember tearing up my new freezer and started laughing. Made me turn red in the face 30 years later. It's funny now sure as heck wasn't funny then
