Many lefties struggle to operate large-scale handyman tools or to cope with right hand oriented home implements. This tension can result in dangerous accidents which could have been avoided. At the least, tools that are adapted for right-handlers can be simply downright counter-intuitive, annoying and inconvenient.
Safety is a huge concern when using workshop and outdoor gear. Lefties who try to use tools that are not designed for them can end up getting hurt by their use. For example, if a machine’s safety off- switch is positioned in the best place for a right-handed person to reach, it will be the absolute worst place for a left-handed person.
From a small shift of blade orientation on garden tools or handle locations on large equipment like drill presses, details make a huge difference in a lefty’s world. Huge.
