I don't know about National Policy, but when my son requested approval
of an Eagle Scout project that involved use of power tools, both our
Troop Committee (Troop 1 Littleton, MA), and the District Advancement
Committee (East District, Nashua Valley Council, MA) made a point of
insisting that all power tool use be by adults only.
The District Advancement Committee went to extra lengths to remind my
son of this, even though he'd put it into his project proposal (under
the "Safety Precautions" section) at the request of the Troop Committee.
I'd advise your son to plan his project in such a way that it makes sense
for the power tools to be used by adults only.
