If I had any video, the only thing you would have seen would have been a streak of me running toward the house from the woodshop. I knew as soon as I felt the sting that I had hit the blade. I immediately shut off the saw and ran.
If you really want to see pics, I'll be taking some the next time I change the dressings. Basically the ring finger has a laceration from the front side of the nail around the nail and up and over the first knuckle. Lots and lots of stitches, some through the nail itself as they needed an anchoring point to attach the rest of the finger. The end bone was shattered. The middle finger has lots of stitches at the first joint on the underside of the joint.
I was making a dado cut to allow the plywood to slide behind the 2"x4" vertical support on the chute. Board kicked back fingers too close. It happens all too fast . However I have found a remedy for situations like this. It's gonna cost me some money, but may well be worth it. Looks like I will be using the savings from burning coal to purchase one of these. Really cool setup and the saw appears to be well made to boot. http://www.sawstop.com/index.htm
Watch the demo videos. Really impressive !!!!!
Adam the red mark is the color coding from the lumber yard. I made it into the house before the first drop of blood came out.
Yep I know it was a dumb thing to do......should have been more careful. I keep replaying it over and over in my mind. One good thing is that I'm a lefty so I can still do a lot with the other hand. However my finger typing is cut in half.
