I used an air drill recently and was impressed with its torque but even more impressed by how it stops instantly, unlike an electric drill or particularly a Skillsaw that has enough inertia to remain dangerous after you let go of the trigger.
Or chain saw- I have a couple pairs of used-to-be favorite nylon work pants that bear testimony to the **inertial** [should be momentum-related] glide of my chainsaw chain, which occurred when they got too close to the still spinning chain as I moved the saw along the outside of my leg [at what appeared to be a safe distance away from my person] and though they did their job of binding up the chain to stop it from chopping me up, they certainly suffered from it.
I since learned to keep it farther away from me, wear closer fitting clothes, and I always wear my Person Protective Equipment- catcher's leg guards.
