This story reinforces one of my observations about my own safety record. I have several scares on my hands and arms. Most of them came from tools we don’t consider particularly dangerous. The longest scare came from a hand saw. Another came from a chisel.

My safety alert level goes way up when I am using the more dangerous tools (table saw, jointer, etc.). I think I get too casual about safety with hand tools and, in theory, lower risk power tools – like drilling a pocket hole.
