Suffered my first incidence of kickback on my crappy table saw today. The ironic part? I was making a push block.
I guess it’s probably not true kickback, just gross stupidity. I had left the piece of wood on the saw after setting the fence, then turned it on. The 2×4 came flying backwards and hit my forearm. I’ve got a nasty red mark, and have a feeling it’s going to be a glorious bruise. Could have broken my arm…
there’s a nice gouge from the saw blade across the top of the block. I’m leaving it there to remind myself of safety!!
