Five different types of pushing blocks.
It is no use crying over spilt milk.
I should have made these pushing blocks before.
Nothing fancy, easy to make, left over material can be utilized.
On the router table with dove tail bit, I made a mistake.
To prevent 15 stitches, I suggest you make pushing block if you do not have.

Been thinking about making a set of these myself. Thanks for telling your story. You probably just saved me a finger.

Sorry you had to go through that, but kudos for getting back up on that horse bro.

Get well soon.

Welcome to the club. Sadly we are very stubborn when it comes to working with wood. amine was a freak accident and I wasn’t even technically cutting anything, until my hand slipped into a running blade.

Those are some great looking push blocks. I like the adjustable heel built into one of them, too.

Sorry to hear about your digits. I am very respectful of cutting tools, but still, I’m sure that most people are. I hope they heal quickly.

My left hand looked just like that last summer after a kickback incident. I went straight out and bought the Grr-Ripper.

If given enough time, we all learn at some point.
