I can't use LH scissors because my brain had already absorbed the idea of where and how to sight down the blades long before I ever saw, much less attempted to use any. With a tool I've never used before, this shouldn't be a problem. I hope.

In our situation, Harimad, it's a lack of safety consideration of non-righties by the mfrs that keeps you (or me) finding power tools for lefties.
