Don’t read this and then leave without replying.

Minds want to know. A short response is all that is required. In your response increase the totals so that others don’t have to summarize all of the previouse responses.

Have you ever had a kickback. ?

Yes 1
No 0

Did you get hurt?
Yes 1
No 0

Now it’s your turn to fess up.

No zero to first question

and yes 1
no 1 to second question.

No and N/A.

But… I am really surprised that it never happened. I did a lot of really stupid things around power tools when I was growing up and didn’t know any better. Nobody taught me when I was young. I did stuff like rip 2×4s without a fence. But I’m talkin’ over ten years ago when I was a dumb kid. (I’m still a kid but hopefully just not quite as dumb.)

Kickback = Yes = 3
Hurt = No = 1

However the wood did shoot into the drywall of my garage like a spear… if it had hit me I would have been hurt.

Yes kickback
Yes to the hurt, but only a slight punch in the gut, where I am admirably padded against injury. The Carhartt’s must have taken the brunt of the force. The offcut on the outside of the blade is what came back.

yes I have had a kickback. I dont know where were at for totals. I was hurt. My feelings, pride and solar plexis all bruised. I was cutting a hunk of oak with the fence when I clearly should have been using the miter gauge. It was on one of those 5 horse powermatic beasts at a local cabinet shop. I kid you not, one second i was cutting and another second I was on my back on the floor a few feet from the saw. It knocked the wind out of me and left a three-quarter by six inch bruise across my midsection….hurt like heck!! Never again will I make the same mistake.

Kickback yes.
Was barely hurt once because of it. The piece hit my finger on it’s trip across the room. Was only hurt akin to stubbing a toe.

Yes, several kickbacks, although until something new comes up, I think I’ve figured out what will cause one.
Yes, to hurt, but not every time. Worse was a blow to the lower abdomen, that I truly feel led to a hernia. Had some damage done by “flying wood” to a shop door.

no kickback
no hurt

Karson- it’d be crazy for everyone to try and keep track of the total numbers as people might post at the same time, and you’ll have multithreading counting going on… and PS- how are you recovering from that kickback?

maybe there should be a way to post a “poll” forum thread for people to vote and have LJ script keep track of numbers… (Martin are you getting this ? or are you still busy with trolly polly?)

Purple man you are an agitator. I appreciate that in people. You want to sell any of your curly Bubinga since you put it in storage.
