Wood Dust and Health
Ran across this Canadian gov article about the hazards of wood dust exposure.  It's very straight forward in the assessment of the hazards. That said, it seems to lean to the side of gloom and doom.  I've always paid more attention to keeping my fingers attached to my hands.

Tailstock Drill (Lever Action)
I was never happy drilling on the lathe.  All that cranking of the tailstock wheel and never enough travel.  I always thought a lever action, like a drill press, would be nice especially when it comes to clearing the chips from the bit and hole.
