The other day I found that no matter how safe you try to be accidents do happen.
Case in point, jointing a piece of oak using two push blocks to run the board through, the board exploded the blocks flew away and my left hand went into the blades. I amputated the top of my ring and middle finger and part of my index finger. It could have been worse.
I am on blood thinners so this posed a whole bunch of complications.So I am stressing my fellow jocks, if you are not comfortable with a certain procedure do ita different way.
I am selling my jointer because of this and will continue woodworking after I heal.
