Rotating elements of a portable machine tool are always a safety concern as they present the possibility of pinching or entangling as they pass other elements of the machine. In addition, the rotating elements can interact with other pipes, bulkheads, walls, scaffolding, etc. creating hazards even with machines designed to eliminate as many external pinch points as possible. As always, safe operation can only be provided by a careful operator, and cannot be “built-in” to a machine.
