About 15 years ago, i was out in the garage. It was bitterly cold. So I was wearing my tough leather motorcycle jacket over a thick sweater on top of a flannel shirt and t-shirt. It was one of those “it will be okay just this once” moments and I was cross-cutting some 1/4” masonite on my table saw. The blade caught the workpiece and kicked it back into my abdomen. It felt like being kicked very hard. When I caught my breath, I went inside and discovered that despite all the layers, I was bleeding. Luckily it only broke the skin and all I suffered was serious bruising.

Since then, I have been very careful about kickback.
