Hmmm. So I take it that Non-events are near misses… or potential misses of a dangerous event ? Our tools and our procedures for using those tools (whether taken for granted or not) are inherently loaded with our “plans” to master the potential and kinetic energy that could cause an “event”.

Even though almost the same thing you describe happened recently (mine was a slightly warped poplar glue-up), I do not consider that a Non-event because the magnetic featherboard, the push stick and my position behind the saw left me in control during the non-occurrence. There was not even one split second of Oops or Whew involved. That is why I had them in place / use (because of the possibility / eventual likelihood of such things happening).

No, I have no “Non-events” to report.
