HEY WALDO -- don't be sad - you did the right thing - I just lapsed into complacency because it was a nice machine.
But it won't get a second chance -

and when it leaves I am ordering and replacing it with either a Powermatic 1791001K or maybe a 1792000K [ more power grunt grunt]
These have all the nice new safety thingies a dummy like me needs

working on power equipment is dangerous. As Dave mentioned if you dont want to get hurt, dont do anything. Theres lotsa dead asses all over america making it work. I dont expect that there are many on this site. Too whats a digit every thirty or forty years, with nine left you got plenty to get you to the finish line :) Still gotta be unsettling though.... :shock:

I have had 2 body parts reattached over the years. They both still work. :D I have also had 2 others disconnected but that is a different story all together. And by choice :lol: It would be good if a bunch of good for nothings, had that done before reproducing.

Damn,

I got to check back in here more frequently. It's this little thing called work that keeps getting in the way.

Oh Sting................ I did my same 2 digits twice on the table saw. The second time I did it, I managed to turn the saw off, turn off the lights to the garage, close the door, and still get my hand under the kitchen sink before the blood was dripping onto the floor. Oh and I did manage to grab a stool to sit on at the sink before getting lightheaded. The wife comes home to see me with my hand under the running water. All she asked was how bad this time ?? Calmly I replied almost like the last time. After you bring in the rest of the stuff you bought you can run me to the E.R. She dropped me off and said to call her after they were done consulting with everyone. So 4 hours later I was like this !! :beer: :blah:

And that really looked like a nice set up. Wish I was closer to you, it could have made its way to my house and I would et you come over to watch me use it !!!!

45 years working with power tools professionally and I've been lucky, no damage a band aid couldn't take care of, although it was usually was masking tape, or duct tape, which ever was closest.

As a teen working in a boatyard, I got to see what a thumb of a fellow worker looks like rolling across a board being cut on the table saw. That was a pretty good lesson in what not to do.

Then just as a refresher, not long after, I came home to my father standing with a towel around his hand while my mother was on the phone to the doctor. Sliced his middle finger on his left hand down into the bone by leaning on the table saw after he shut it off, but the blade was still spinning down, while he was admiring the piece of wood he'd just cut.

The doctor stitched it up, but Dad cut the nerve so he lost all feeling in that finger forever. We did get a chuckle from it later on. Everytime he used his "Brooklyn turn signal" he had to look at his hand to make sure it was extended ! :D
