pushing a slab of 1/4” thick x 20” wide lumber through the vintage planer, the board slipped up, hands went under, wood slapped down and was feeding both hands and arms into the planer… stopped before entering but it sure pinched my fingers into one big blood blister.

slipping on junk on the floor, loose balance, fall and hand slides across moving jointer knives…........just shaved the skin off

cutting a board on the TS, kicked and jammed hand against saw blade….....burnt the skin off

cutting cove on the TS, multiple passes on a 45 degree angle and had the fence on the wrong side of the blade, kicked back and sharpened index finger into apencil point.

drove screw through finger, into ceiling, dropped screw driver and was crucified to ceiling forthe next couple hours

pulled nail from ceiling, hammer came down and sliced my forehead open.

TWICE…...........I’ve ripped small strips on the TS and cut index finger, then baby finger into liver patte’

Saw a piece of white oak shatter on a TS, driving huge splinters through a fellas eye and forearm

saw a guy rip wood, ran his hand across the rip blade removing all four fingers and his thumb

saw a guy put a piece of lumber across the shaper, kicked back and removed thumb, index finger and next finger

saw a guy push lumber through the planer, knot fell half way out and stopped lumber from going through, he pushed the knot back up with his thumb and his thumb was sheered off.

watched a guy adjust the spring on an industrial overhead door…....clamps let go and in seconds he looked like a disected Frankenstein
