Good news is I still have all my fingers.
Had a bad kickback from cutting the material. Crunched my left hand with the flying board edge – no blade contact. X-Rays show nothing broken. Fingers pretty lacerated and swollen. Got a long overdue Tetanus shot.
Accident was 100% avoidable. Should have been more careful and should have set up an outfeed table. Probably should not have worked alone. Then again, my 16-year old would have done it right and not had a problem to begin with. I get on him constantly about safety and using pushblocks but got lazy myself.
Taking a few days off. Will get some help this weekend from my 16-year old. Disappointed because I wanted to accomplish something on my own. Not gonna happen this time.
