    I agree with curling the fingers to somewhat protect them, but I'm always leery of putting my hands past the cutter. Just as with putting your hand on the far side of a tablesaw blade, in the event...

    If so, then the point of a similarly-sharpened drafting pencil also should...

    I'm with Jamie and Edward. Foam isn't needed for shaper cutters, and it can actually cause problems, in my experience. Humidity condenses on the cold steel, and then the foam keeps it there. Leaving...
