A few months, Odie made a post about getting hurt because he wasn’t keeping his mind on what he was doing. Well…...

stuff happens when you don’t pay attention.

especially when you are thinking about what you are going to do instead of what you’re doing.

That tablesaw in my shop ain’t no sawstop

And typing with one hand is no fun

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.

Damn Gary, that picture made me suck half of this wheelchair up my _ . Now where did I put those tire irons? I did a similar thing with a bandsaw about 30 years ago. I’m glad you still got the thumb.

ok so if i wanted to build a table from body parts, how clean did it cut, or was there a lot of chipout? j/k
that looks horrible and made me cringe pretty bad, i was doing a few dado cuts with the mitre and going to town when i started to take notice because i swore i felt a breeze next to my thumb, well luckily thats all it was but it was incredibly close to about the same situation, its amazing how often you can get lax on safetly, i dont mind a few scrapes and such but when gaping wounds start coming into play thats no good
but it could have been worse… be careful guys n gals!

-- if you dont have it, build it, especially when its a stupid idea
