i am selling my new saw - it bit me today after about 4-5 hours use
not sure but i think ill step up to the latest version that sports a automatic riving knife to help prevent kick back

9 stitchs and a thumb bone broken joint---tonic water for the quinine - gin to dull the cold ice pack

I'll bite.....are you serious or just jerking our chains? There are definitely things or should i say maneuvers that you should not do on a table saw.

Sorry to hear of the mishap. The riving knife and multiple featherboards keep those kickbacks from getting you and make the extra minute or so of set up time well worth it.

However with your unfortunate experiences I think this may be one machine you should avoid in the future.

Similarly there is this 'round peg in a square hole' saying that applies to me and welding..... :oops:

Instead of the table saw, I'd send you in the direction of a hand saw but I have cut myself using my box saw about three times over the years and that was just putting it back in its sheath after I was done the cut!! :shock:

If you do nothing you reduce your risks of getting hurt. Maybe the freeloaders are on to something. :mad: Sorry to hear about the hand Sting. I saw your post about the new saw and was a little jealous. I am not anymore. ;)

Sorry to hear it is for real Sting. Sorta amazing to be so talented and some other talent evades people. I have to admit I do not like big powerful table saws but have survived many years of using smaller ones. I know several people missing fingers because of them.
The old shop I worked at last year had an antique saw that weighed a ton and had a 16 inch blade. ALL the employees feared that beast. The fence weighed 100 lbs. There is not enough money on earth to pay me to stand in front of that thing and push plywood into it. There were several incidents with plywood on the saw that was just like yours. The funny things is you must control the plywood and push past the blade, I was taught never to put my hand in the danger zone which is even with and past the blade. The size of the individual feeding is at play also. As a short man, I have to stretch out and reach, while a longer limbed individual can more easily stay in his power zone, and handle larger material. Lots of variables, can't have enough safety stuff like Flyer mentioned. Have you seen the blade stop that will stop the blade when it touches you skin and very likely won't break the skin. They demo it with a hot dog.

A finger? Not bad ... I cut 1/2 my thumb off (able to reattach) and drilled a small depth 4" hole saw into my own chest when drilling holes for vents in my eves...hit a 2 by 12 and whamo ! Drill with 4"whole saw bit came into my chest and I had to push it away (always on button engaged of course!) and almost cost me a thumb.

If the women don't find you handsome, they outta find ya handy....paraphrasing Red Green

Not as bad as hitting 40,000 volt power lines when trimming a tree ! bzz bzz bzz

Keep on with woodworking .. ya got 9 digits left !

Give me a chance to F it up- Anything is possible 8-)

When I got to the address it was down a narrow hall and a long carpeted staircase in a basement OMG
So yes - the cavalry was called and it was in the van an hour later
For living it whole life in a finished basement - I was surprised to fine rust stains on the deck - but I also found paint and scratches so even as it wasn't used much - its life wasn't quite as luxurious as CL described. The riving knife lock is also striped but I helicoil it today

:jawdrop: Sting,

sorry to hear of your mishap. :sick: So have you lost a digit or just kerfed one up? Man, I feel kinda bad steering you toward a big saw but the same thing woulda happened with a small saw , everything being equal. Dont give up on the thing , have someone that uses these things stand by and watch you work on it for an hour or two, they should be able to steer you around any more trouble.

Regards,

waldo

Hope it wasnt your magic finger, the girls at the bar will be sad...... :love:
